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.

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.

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.

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 area of campus. Many campus organizations rely fully on donations. Your gift will help these areas of campus thrive.
  • You can thank a professor or staff member who transformed your college experience. Your donation 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.

How to Give

You can donate online at any time. There will also be many opportunities to give before graduation, including events like Senior Sunset, or by contacting representatives of the Senior Giving Drive Committee. Your donation can be designated to specific parts of campus, such as academic departments, financial aid, diversity initiatives and more.
