The Bridgewater State University Foundation (BSUF) was started in 1984 as a tax-exempted 501(c)(3) institutionally related foundation to advance the mission of the University, safeguard donor intention and manage private assets for the benefit of Bridgewater State University.
The BSU Foundation is its own nonprofit organization that is structurally separate from the University and exists solely for the benefit of BSU. The BSUF works closely with the university’s governing board of trustees, senior administrators, and our Alumni Association in fulfilling its mission.
Its independent Foundation Board of Trustees, led by BSUF Chair Joseph St. Laurent, '88, is comprised of accomplished alumni and prominent professionals from across the region. BSUF Trustees have fiduciary responsibility over the management of its assets on behalf of BSU while ensuring donor intention is honored by the university. They collectively provide specialized legal, business and financial management expertise to the operation of the Foundation for the betterment of Bridgewater.

In the interest of transparency, we have enclosed below electronic copies of our latest financial records and current governance documents. Trust is the true currency of philanthropy; and thanks to the commitment of our stalwart trustees and generous donors, the BSU Foundation is fortunate in many, many ways.
