The Power of Gifts

The generosity of BC’s alumni, parents, and friends has been felt throughout the Heights.

44,422. That’s how many individuals chose to change lives at Boston College by making a gift this past fiscal year.

To demonstrate the power of these gifts, BC’s Office of University Advancement created the 2013–2014 Boston College Impact of Giving Report.

Fiscal year 2014 was a record-breaking one for Boston College, with increases in both funds raised and the number of donors choosing to give for BC. Gifts totaled an impressive $132 million, with gifts of $100 or less adding up to $1.8 million.

Whether it’s remembering their own BC experience, raising BC in the rankings, or honoring the place where their child spent formative years, those giving for BC do so for a myriad of reasons—and our University is incredibly grateful to each and every one of the 44,422 donors who stepped up.

Take a deeper look into the power of gifts for Boston College.
