About

From May 4-6, the Bates community comes together to celebrate Bates athletics and show support for our favorite teams by making a gift to the FBA Giving Challenge. Your contribution toward Bates athletics provides student-athlete with the ability to excel in the classroom and on the field. 

As our student-athletes and coaches navigate the full return to competitive play, they continue to show tremendous tenacity on and off the field. They joined together as teammates to practice, improve their skills, and cultivate an inclusive atmosphere within their teams. There are so many amazing moments to celebrate - thrilling last-second touchdown passes, tie-breaking three-point shots, and cutting down celebratory nets. Show your support for Bates athletics with a gift today!
