Leaving a Legacy

Light the World calls on all BC family members to consider an estate gift that secures their own legacy at the Heights while enhancing the student experience for future generations.

Your legacy gift—whether a bequest, beneficiary designation, or other commitment—can be directed to areas of personal significance, such as financial aid, student-faculty research, athletics, and service-learning programming. Or you can make an unrestricted gift to help BC best address its future needs.

Benefactors who will be at least 60 years of age by Dec. 31, 2016, will have their legacy gifts counted toward the campaign’s $1.5-billion fundraising goal.

But regardless of your age, legacy gifts—of all sizes—can help ensure BC remains strong for future generations and paves the way for the University’s continued rise.
