The Bridgewater Fund helps ensure that Bridgewater students continue to pursue their educational dreams at BC. First and foremost, it provides funding for student scholarships, but that's not all. Annual gifts from alumni, parents, friends and businesses provide unrestricted funds that are used when opportunities arise throughout the academic year.
Alumni participation in particular is crucial, because it is a statistic reported to ranking organizations like U.S. News & World Report. The rankings are looked at by foundations and organizations that are considering grants to Bridgewater. As such, it is a measure of satisfaction and serves as a vote of confidence in Bridgewater College. As participation increases, our reputation for academic excellence is enhanced, along with the value of a Bridgewater College degree.
Every gift, regardless of size, makes a difference.
