For Students

SCGC 2018

The Senior Class Gift Campaign (SCGC)’s mission is to educate graduating students about the importance of giving back to Bowdoin and engage them in contributing to the Alumni Fund. Through the SCGC, seniors gain an understanding of how their Bowdoin experiences have been shaped, in part, by the support of Bowdoin alumni, and  have the opportunity to support Bowdoin through a contribution to their class scholarship fund.

Challenge Grant: If the Class of 2018 hits 60% participation this spring and for the following four years, then a member of the Class of 1982 and parent of 2018 will contribute $10,000 each year for the next four years to establish and support the Class of 2018 Scholarship Fund.

Our Goal: The senior class goal is to reach 80% participation before graduation.

Club/Team Involvement: Common Good Grant Committee, Films About Feminism, Bear Buddies, Safe Space

Why did you decide to get involved with the SCGC? As a part of the Common Good Grant I have had the privilege to serve on both the development and grant committees, two experiences I have found to be formative to my career pursuits. I found immense satisfaction serving on the development committee and thoroughly enjoyed engaging with both alumni and local individuals in asking them to contribute to the grant. I would like to broaden my experience from the Common Good Grant through the training provided by this position and execute the skills I gain with my peers and begin a journey of what I hope would be a lifetime of giving back to Bowdoin.

Club/Team Involvement: Alpine Ski Team (Captain), Girls Who Code (Leader), Women in Computer Science, Running Club, Bowdoin Peer Mentoring (Leader)

Why did you decide to get involved with the SCGC? The friends I’ve made in my class are friends I strongly feel I will have for the rest of my life, and the prospect of a position that entails keeping our class connected to each other and to Bowdoin is extremely exciting for me. Furthermore, an opportunity to give back to Bowdoin after Bowdoin has given me so much is one that I would not want to miss out on.

Club/Team Involvement: Theater and Dance, Residential Life, Multicultural Rep to the BSG, Longfellows, Slam Poets Society

Why did you decide to get involved with the SCGC? Bowdoin built my confidence as a leader, a musician, and a public speaker. It is an honor to give back to Bowdoin in my senior year by leading the Senior Gift Campaign as a Director.  I am a firm believer in showing gratitude and paying kindness forward, so raising donations for the college is a great way to achieve both goals. This kind of work not only keeps the school running, but also grants Bowdoin more resources that will be accessible to the students coming behind me.

Why did you decide to get involved with the SCGC? I believe my life at Bowdoin has transformed me into a passionate believer in the full benefits of a liberal arts education.
