Legacy gifts have long been crucial to the University’s growth and prosperity. But, today, forward-thinking donors can include an estate provision as a meaningful part of their overall Light the World campaign pledge.
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 one’s age, every legacy gift helps to ensure that BC remains strong for future generations and paves the way for the University’s continued rise.
“The BC community has responded with great enthusiasm to our ongoing campaign push to increase the number of legacy gifts,” says Kathleen M. McGillycuddy NC’71, Board of Trustees chair and Light the World campaign co-chair.
“The University wishes to further recognize the critical difference these benefactors and their support play in our mission by counting their planned gifts alongside all other campaign commitments. I hope more BC donors follow their example.”
