Secure the BC Experience for Future Generations

How will you be remembered? There is a wonderful lineage that connects today’s Eagles to those who came before—and now is the time to secure the BC experience for future generations.
Secure the BC Experience for Future Generations

Boston College was founded in part through a legacy gift of rare books and the proceeds of a life insurance policy from Joseph Coolidge Shaw, S.J.

Today, legacy commitments—those in a will, retirement plan, or insurance policy—continue a proud and meaningful tradition of philanthropy at the Heights.

A planned gift, of any size, can help enhance the Light the World campaign priority of one’s choosing or can be unrestricted, enabling BC to flexibly address its future needs. Every gift matters by giving Boston College the fiscal strength to plan for tomorrow and move forward with confidence.

Your support secures your lasting legacy at Boston College.
