Why give?

Support our mission

How your gift helps

From the structural framework of Carnegie Hall to the intellectual framework of the new Freeman College of Management, planned gifts to Bucknell have been integral in supporting a wide-range of areas.

Benefits of giving

A gift through your long term plans can provide you substantial tax benefits, such as savings in income taxes, capital gains taxes, probate expenses and estate taxes.

Meet the Ellen Clarke Bertrand Society
