Inspiring Annual Support

To be successful, Light the World seeks to inspire record numbers of alumni like you to give back to the University each year.

Annual gifts to BC make up some of the most reliable funding for financial aid, academics, and athletics—strengthening the life-changing student experience that helps connect all Eagles to each other and the world.

Gifts of all sizes matter—and the collective power of your annual gifts cannot be overstated. For instance, last year annual gifts of $100 or less totaled more than $1.3 million.

Such funding is essential in helping the University tackle unforeseen challenges and seize opportunities as they arise. Your gifts also capture the very essence of the BC spirit—as you and your fellow Eagles stand up for the University’s outstanding students and distinctive mission.
