The Senior Gift Drive is a student-run, student-led effort to engage the senior class in giving back to Bucknell.

Why Make a Gift?

Giving back supports the opportunities and scholarships and that you have benefited from during your time at Bucknell. This includes financial aid, student groups, sports, facilities, and many other components. 

The Basics


You can make a gift online at any time.

There will also be many opportunities to give before graduation, including events where our class will gather to celebrate our accomplishments.


Donations can be made online, in person at Senior Gift Drive events, or by contacting chairs or representatives of the Senior Gift Drive committee.

Our Progress


As of April 13, we've received gifts from only 205 of the 888 members of our class. (Our goal is at least 639 students, or 72%.)

Student-athletes are leading the way. Already 139 out of 156 athletes (that's 89%!) have given a total of $2,740.

The Details

Every donation counts.

Our goal is to have 72% of the Class of 2015 make a gift. $1 donations are just as important as $100 donations.

If you make a donation of $5 or more, you'll receive a medallion to pin on your graduation gown.

If you make a donation of $50 or more, you'll receive an invitation to an appreciation dinner with President Bravman.

Three Reasons to Give

  • Any donation increases Bucknell's ranking in U.S News and World Report Rankings ... which increases the value of your diploma.
  • Scholarships help Bucknell compete for the best students and faculty ... which keeps our University viable and relevant far into the future.
  • Many campus organizations fully rely on donations. Your gift will make a significant difference.
