Class Giving Program

The Class Giving Program allows you to mark your achievements and affirm your belief in the value of a Baker education. In addition to encouraging your return to campus this May, we hope you will consider making a gift today in honor of your class to support Baker’s current and future students and faculty. On Saturday during the Alumni Weekend luncheon, the class that has given the most will be recognized with the Pinnacle Award. Help make your class this year’s winner!
