Legacy Giving

Leave a Lasting Legacy

Including Boston College in your estate plan is a simple, yet powerful, way to invest in the University’s future.

When you make a planned gift—of any size—you help strengthen the BC experience for the next generation of Eagles.

You can enhance campus priorities that have personal meaning to you, such as financial aid, student-faculty research, athletics, and service-learning programming. Or you can make an unrestricted gift that enables BC to best address its future needs. Whatever your commitment, you’ll join a special tradition of giving at the Heights and be welcomed into the Shaw Society.

Leave a legacy gift. Be a beacon for future generations.
