Joey Martin '12"I am incredibly thankful for my time at Bucknell. My four years as a student were a truly transformative experience for me. Bucknell offers a world-class undergraduate academic experience. For this reason, I try to find ways to give back to the University I love each year.

When I first heard about the Bertrand Society, my initial impression led me to believe that it wasn’t intended for younger alumni, in the earlier stages of their careers. However, I learned that the group actually offers us a unique opportunity to increase our impact in a meaningful way.

By designating Bucknell as a beneficiary of my 401K, I can make a commitment within my means. Although my gift won’t be realized by Bucknell for years to come, planned gifts help to sustain the University. I want to do my part to ensure that future generations of Bucknellians have the same opportunities that I had, and more.

As one of the younger members of the Bertrand Society, I call on my peers to consider making a planned gift to our alma mater that we’re so passionate about. Who wants to see Bucknell thrive? WE DO."
