"Making a leadership Annual Fund gift is my way of saying thank you. Bucknell gave so much to me -- life-long friendships, a valuable education, and preparation for challenges in the business and legal arenas. Bucknell is the memories I have of everything in between orientation and graduation; the memories I continue to build. I give to Bucknell as much for the past as I do for the present and the future. I give to Bucknell with the hope of providing students an opportunity they might not otherwise be able to have. I give to Bucknell so that others can build their own memories." -- Angela Beblo '02

Annual Fund Leadership Giving

Named for the wooded hillside Bucknellians have treasured since 1846, the Grove Society recognizes Bucknell alumni, parents and friends who demonstrate their commitment to the University by making Annual Fund gifts at the leadership level.

Leading the way

By joining Bucknell's most generous society of Annual Fund donors, you can enhance the undergraduate experience of current students and prepare them to make an impact on the world.

Leadership gifts to the Annual Fund:

  • provide immediate resources to the areas of greatest need at Bucknell
  • support every University initiative – from scholarships and undergraduate research to academic departments and student life
  • build enthusiasm and momentum for our $400 million comprehensive campaign

An investment in every student

We invite you to become a member of the Grove Society by making a gift of $2,500 or more to the Annual Fund. Corporate matching gifts count toward your projected total gift. Members receive two lapel pins, recognition in the annual Honor Roll of Donors & Volunteers, and invitations to leadership recognition events held on campus.
