We’re not just leaving the Heights; we’re leaving a legacy!

As seniors, together we can unite to leave our legacy at the Heights. Let’s celebrate our time at Boston College by paying it forward for the generations of Eagles who will follow in our footsteps.

University Trustee Drake Behrakis '86 P’24 is challenging the Class of 2021 to unite and make the Heights even brighter. For every 250 seniors that make their gift, he will donate $5,000 to student financial aid—for up to $25,000 in challenge funds. 

Honor your friends, memories, and achievements at BC by giving to what you love on campus. Join us to secure our legacy at the Heights for years to come.

Why should I give?

There are a ton of reasons to give. Here are two big ones:

To join my classmates in honoring what we love about BC. Now is our chance to pay tribute to that professor, that class, that student activity that changed our lives forever.

To lead the way for future Eagles. We can help ensure that their experiences at the Heights will be just as great as ours.

Why do our gifts matter at a big school like BC?

Many of us don't realize that tuition doesn't cover all of the BC experience. If you look at the big picture, you'd find that a lot of the stuff that makes BC great—the stellar academics, the student resources, the top-ranked athletics, and the service programs—is only possible through the support of our alumni donors.
Now is our first chance to join them for BC.

What can I give to?

You can support what you love. By giving to what matters most you on the Heights, your gift can be as unique as you are. Perhaps you relied on financial aid to attend BC and want to pay it forward by supporting student scholarships. Maybe the PULSE program inspired your worldview. Or a student organization introduced you to your closest friends.

Many students choose to support the General Scholarship Fund, the Class of 2021 Legacy Fund, athletics through the Flynn Fund, or a student organization close to their heart. You can support the programs and initiatives that are most personally meaningful—the choice is yours.
