#GivingTuesday a soaring success


The power to change lives was in your hands, and you made it happen.

We’re thrilled to announce that an incredible 3,017 BC alumni, parents, and friends gave over $375,000 for BC on #GivingTuesday. Thanks to their generosity, an anonymous donor gave $200,000 to support financial aid, enabling more BC students to gratefully call the Heights home. And because 1,003 GOLD alumni banded together to hit their goal, an additional $50,000 was added to the total.

Altogether, the BC family raised over $625,000 this #GivingTuesday and set a new University record for gifts received in a single day!

We couldn’t have done it without each and every donor! Thank you again for making #GivingTuesday a giant success.
