The Student Alumni Leadership Council (SALC) is a student organization committed to creating a culture of philanthropy and meaningful connections between Bentley students and alumni.

In 2013, SALC students asked their fellow Falcons to make their first gift to the Bentley Fund — and student giving has been growing on campus ever since, proving to our entire community that we care about maintaining Bentley’s excellence. 

Why does giving back to Bentley matter? Take a look.

Aside from building amazing relationships, SALC members serve as ambassadors for the Office of Alumni and Family Engagement to make a difference in the Bentley community on and off campus.

Falcon Fuel

Each fall, as our Bentley student community prepares for their final exams of the semester, SALC is there to support them with words of encouragement collected from alumni around the world. This advice is provided with something sweet to fuel them through the stress and late nights. 

Philanthropy Week

At most private colleges and universities, tuition doesn’t cover it all. Philanthropy Week is a time to celebrate a tradition of philanthropy, learn how the Bentley Fund supports all aspects of our student experience and give back to Bentley. SALC hosts events all week long to help students learn how things like scholarship and financial aid, clubs and athletics, classes and research are all supported by donations from alumni, parents, friends and students — yes, students.

Senior Class Gift

At Bentley, being a donor is a big deal. Give at least $5 to our Senior Class Gift and receive special recognition with a donor cord at Commencement. All senior donors will be celebrated at the senior class toast at the end of the semester.  

The number of donors — a.k.a., our giving participation — affects things like Bentley’s national rankings and the corporate and foundation funding that Bentley receives. The greater our numbers, the greater the value of our degree.

Make a gift today!
