Light the World calls the Boston College family together to strengthen the dynamic and distinctive BC experience for today’s students—and to secure the University’s standing among the nation’s leading academic institutions.

Your campaign support—at any level—can have an exponential impact on our Jesuit, Catholic mission to spark intellectual inquiry, conduct socially conscious research, and develop tomorrow’s leaders.

In short, your gift can transform lives.

Together, we can make a lasting difference as we, in the words of St. Ignatius, “go set the world aflame.”
