Consider the benefit of your gift at work: scholarships change lives every day.
Approximately 90% of the Carpe Diem Fund is dedicated to scholarship support. Most of our students have very high levels of financial need. In fact, in addition to their college classes, students work an average of 30 hours per week at jobs on and off campus just to earn enough money to stay in college.
The most direct way to make an immediate, positive, and meaningful impact on students.
Your gift to the Carpe Diem Fund is put to work immediately. While unrestricted gifts are most needed, you have the option of designating your gift to specific operational areas, including Academic Programs, Athletics, Buildings and Grounds, Faculty Development, General Scholarship, Library Resources, Technology Upgrades and the Graduate School.
Help ensure that students have the resources they need to thrive at Bay Path.
We need your help. $2,000 is all it takes to transform promising students into accomplished alumni. This is the amount that determines whether a student can continue what she started, or whether she gives up on her dreams.
Be part of their success regardless of the amount.
Collectively, many gifts make a huge impact. All gifts count; all gifts make a difference. Ten gifts of $200 or twenty gifts of $100 mean that another student can reach her goal.
Additionally, the more alumni who participate, the easier it is for Bay Path to attract funds from outside grant makers. Your participation is viewed as an indicator of your belief in the mission of your alma mater.
Give your gift special meaning.
Make your gift in memory or honor of someone special. It is a wonderful way to recognize someone who has had a meaningful connection to you or Bay Path. Honor your favorite faculty member, family member, mentor, roommate or friend today. Gifts are acknowledged to the family and friends and are listed in our Annual Report.
Multiply your gift; multiply your impact.
Many employers will match a percentage of your gift, often at 100%. Employers also frequently extend this benefit to spouses and partners. To find out if an employer is a Matching Gift Employer, please check online at: http://www.matchinggifts.com/baypath/ or, contact your Human Resources office.
Take a tax break.
Your gift is 100% tax deductible. Once we receive your gift, you will receive an acknowledgement letter that your donation has been received and processed. Please keep this letter for tax purposes.
