Student Philanthropy

Your Bucknell experience is defined by moments of discovery and transformation. By giving back to Bucknell, you'll help future generations unlock their potential in momentous ways.

Your support uplifts everything that makes Bucknell a world-class place to live and learn: top-tier academics, diverse student groups, high-tech facilities, championship sports and student-focused financial aid. 

Through initiatives like the Senior Giving Drive, you can give back to the University that's helping you grow.

Senior Giving Drive

The Senior Giving Drive is a student-run, student-led effort to engage the senior class in giving back to Bucknell. Our goal is to have 100% of the class participate. Your gift, of any amount, makes an impact on current and future Bucknellians.

And you’ll have plenty of opportunities to give before graduation, including at events like Senior Sunset where our class will gather to celebrate our accomplishments. Donations can be made with campus dollars, cash, checks or credit. 

Why Give?

You improve Bucknell’s standing against peer schools.

Any donation increases Bucknell's placement in U.S. News and World Report rankings, which increases the value of your diploma. Also, when the University, departments or student groups apply for grants, the reviewing foundations and boards often look for high participation rates from those who know the organization best — alumni, faculty, staff and students.

You can have a direct and immediate impact on your favorite group.

Many campus organizations rely fully on donations. Your gift will help these areas of campus thrive.

You can thank a professor who transformed your college experience.

Your gift can be made in honor of a professor or staff member who made an impact on your Bucknell experience. That's a great way to say thank you.
