There are as many good reasons to give to Bentley as there are supporters of the university. Some wish to express their gratitude to the school for setting them on a path to professional success. Others derive satisfaction from giving a helping hand to the next generation of business leaders. Still others are motivated by a desire to support a particular program or initiative that holds special meaning in their life.
Annual giving provides "strength in numbers"
Whatever your motivation - or whatever amount you give - the important thing is that you participate. A great way to start is with a gift to the Annual Fund.
At face value, it may appear that a gift of $25, $50 or $100 could not have a real impact on student life at Bentley. Of course, don’t take everything at face value.
The true power of making a gift to the Annual Fund lies in the numbers. Each gift is pooled with the generous donations from thousands of other members of the Bentley community, and together these funds make a real difference on campus.
