What are Legacy Grants?

Made possible by BC seniors and University Trustee Drake Behrakis '86, Legacy Grants are used to fund creative and innovative BC student projects that impact the lives of others. Projects that are funded by Legacy Grants inspire change, serve others, and exemplify what it means to be "men and women for others."

An ideal Legacy Grant project…

  • embodies BC's ideals of social justice;
  • is service-oriented in scope;
  • demonstrates creativity and out-of-the box thinking;
  • engages multiple members of the BC community;
  • may be locally or globally minded;
  • tackles initiatives including but not limited to education, health care, environmental sustainability, the arts, youth leadership, women's issues, technological advance, and mental health awareness; and
  • is sustainable (i.e. provides seed funding for an eventually sustainable volunteer program or children's library that will self-sustain long after it is established)
