The Bucknell Fund consists of unrestricted annual gifts — the Annual Fund’s top priority.

All gifts to the Bucknell Fund are immediately applied to the University’s areas of greatest need.

This flexible funding allows administrators to strategically address emerging needs in all areas of the University and take advantage of unexpected opportunities as they arise.

Why Support the Bucknell Fund?

Every gift matters. Nearly 80 percent of Annual Fund donors make gifts in amounts less than $500. In fiscal year 2016-17, these donations added up to more than $1.9 million.

Every area is strengthened. The Annual Fund covers all parts of the University — including scholarships, academics, the arts, athletics and more.

Every Bucknellian benefits. Gifts to the Annual Fund benefit every student, every day, and help ensure the continuing value of a Bucknell degree for all alumni.
