Bucknell University

August 2016

Dear Bucknellian,

Earlier this year, we shared the news of Bob '45 and Doris Malesardi's historic commitment to Bucknell. Now we're excited to announce the Malesardi Match, a new program to expand endowed scholarships, a top priority of the WE DO Campaign. The program encourages donors to follow Bob and Doris' commitment to helping make Bucknell accessible to all well-qualified students with financial need. See the story below for more on this extraordinary opportunity.

Mark your calendar to come home to celebrate Homecoming Weekend Oct. 21–23. Registration and details are coming soon!

Get ready to 'ray with 100 fun ways to share your Bucknell spirit!

'ray Bucknell!
