Thank You!

Bucknell wouldn’t be Bucknell without its dedicated donors and volunteers. Their time, talent and treasure ensures Bucknell's continued strength and leadership in higher education.

We’re proud to be a philanthropic priority for our supporters, grateful for their continued generosity, and committed to good stewardship of resources.

Many Supporters = One Great University

16,562 donors made gifts to the University in fiscal year 2014-2015.
3,554 alumni, parents and friends volunteered.

Bucknell Loves You Back

We have so many reasons to say thank you.

  • For showing your school pride. Your favorite Bucknell T-shirt or hat tells the world you're proud to be part of the University.
  • For making a gift. Every Annual Fund gift makes a difference. On behalf of all of our students, thank you!
  • For sharing your talents. Across the country and around the world, our volunteers are eager to help other Bucknellians connect, learn and thrive.
  • For continuing your loyal support. Many of our alumni have supported Bucknell since graduation – if not before. (Did you know that Ken Freeman ’72 made his first gift to the University when he was a senior? Those two dollars started it all for Ken, who now chairs Bucknell’s Board of Trustees.)
