Support Bentley

Every Bentley student’s educational experience is enhanced by generous gifts of resources, time, and expertise from members of the Bentley community.
From parents and alumni to foundations, corporations, and faculty, those who support Bentley come from myriad backgrounds. What they share is a belief in Bentley’s 100-year-old mission and a deep commitment to advancing it. 

There are many ways you can create an impact for each and every Bentley student. Contributions can be made to various traditional funds, including the Annual Fund, which serves as the school's flagship philanthropic initiative. Additionally, targeted funds like the Senior Gift benefit and support professional development for faculty and staff.

Donations may be made outright or pledged and paid over a defined period of time. Please contact the Advancement Office at to make a gift or discuss these options in detail.

All gifts made to Bentley School are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
