Bearcats Of the Last Decade (BOLD)

Bearcats Of the Last Decade (BOLD) is a new giving society that provides an opportunity for alumni to re-connect and support the University during the first 10 years following graduation. BOLD offers graduated giving levels and options to designate a gift on a recurring basis or annually.

BOLD members receive special invitations to several special events such as a Homecoming breakfast, socials before Alumni events, and the William McKendree Society spring celebration dinner. Members also receive special gifts and correspondence from the University.

Making a BOLD gift is simple and easy. It is $100 multiplied by the number of years since your graduation. For the first year, it is $100 or $9.00/month. That is like giving up McDonald’s once a month!

View a more in depth breakdown of giving by year.

After 10 years members gain full membership in the William McKendree Society the University’s premier group of supporters.
