A. Eugene '53 and Rosemary Sullivan
While they have made various gifts to Boston College over the years, A. Eugene Sullivan '53 and his wife, Rosemary, wanted to mark Eugene's Golden Eagle induction at his 50th Reunion in a special way.
Gene and Rosemary felt that the best way to celebrate this milestone—as well as recognize the importance BC has played in their lives—was to establish a significant charitable gift annuity (their 11th such gift) and become members of the Gasson Society. The income from this and their other planned gifts to Boston College has enabled Gene and Rosemary to diversify their income and participate in volunteer activities in and around their home in Winchester, Mass.
"From a practical viewpoint, planned giving provides us with considerable tax advantages and income for life, but is also a form of payback for the rewarding experience I had at BC," says Gene. "After the faculty challenged me to work harder, I made the dean's list my last five semesters. Boston College gave me the foundation to pursue a master's program that led to a successful professional career in engineering."
