Major Giving & Corporate/Foundation Support

Major and Corporate/Foundation Support are cornerstones to the Division of Institutional Advancement’s ability to further the institution’s mission, vision and strategic goals and priorities.

Major Gifts

Larger gifts foster transformative change and empower Bowie State University to achieve its mission and institutional priorities. Institutional Advancement works with alumni, supporters and friends to identify partnership and giving opportunities aligning the needs of the university with the wishes of our donors. At Bowie State University, we define major gifts as $10,000 or more regardless of the designation. We encourage major gifts to be directed to build the university endowment, which ensures the long-term viability of the institution.

Corporate and Foundation Support

Relationships with private organizations such as foundations, corporations, civic interests, charities and other organizations are cultivated to raise funds for the university. Current corporate and foundation partners are kept informed of the Bowie State’s strategic priorities and current initiatives and new relationships are fostered by introducing potential corporate and foundation partners to BSU students, alumni,
 faculty and staff.
