More than just another line item on a balance sheet, the Annual Fund is among the most efficient and powerful tools alumni, parents and friends of the university can employ to make a true impact on the Bentley student experience.
From November 20 – December 31, 2013, young alumni who have not yet made a gift to the Annual Fund have an opportunity to double their impact. A generous member of the alumni community will match any gift – up to $1,000 per person – from an undergraduate alumnus/a who graduated between 2005 and 2013. In addition, any new donor who makes a gift on Wednesday, November 20, will receive a special Bentley University magnet! Learn more about this opportunity.
Gifts directed to the Annual Fund are put to immediate use in a variety of ways, providing timely assistance to address Bentley’s greatest needs across campus:
