Donor Recognition

Honor a Loved One

Did you know you could make a gift in honor or in memory of a loved one? Simply complete the designated section in the print or online giving form.

Bentley University honors its generous and loyal supporters through membership in one of 11 donor recognition societies. No matter the size of your gift, there is a donor recognition society for you; because gifts of all sizes are greatly appreciated and play an important role in the ongoing mission of the university.

The university seeks to increase its giving totals by five percent to seven percent annually. By making even a modest increase to your annual gift each year, you can join thousands of other members of our community who do the same and together make an even greater impact on campus and in the lives of today’s students.

To celebrate our most generous benefactors, donors who make annual gifts of $2,500 or more are eligible to attend special events held periodically throughout the year.
