Donor Impact

The generosity of our donors provides our Eagles with the resources they need to be successful on the playing field, in the classroom, and in the local community. We celebrate their contributions all throughout the year at special BC Athletics events.

“BC athletics has provided me with extraordinary opportunity to not only grow through athletics but academically and socially as well. Everything I have done in the past two years has been influenced by the incredible support both my coaches and teammates provide on a daily basis. Not only has BC granted me the opportunity to perform in the best league in the country while attending a first class university, I have been able to do so while forming life long relationships with teammates that has really made these years exceptional.”

—Derek Austin ’21, Tennis

ENDOWMENTS

Donors making a commitment to an endowed athletics scholarship have the opportunity to name the fund according to their wishes. This can be in honor or memory of a loved one or to establish a family legacy. There is also the opportunity to personalize your fund to match your interests—perhaps to a specific sport or for a student-athlete enrolled in a particular school.

TYPES OF ENDOWMENTS

ENDOWED ATHLETIC SCHOLARSHIPS

Each year Boston College funds 272 full athletic scholarships through a combination of the endowment and Flynn Fund annual support. The greater we can grow the scholarship endowment, the greater the opportunity to utilize Flynn Fund dollars for strategic initiatives and improve the overall financial stability of the athletics department.

YOUR STUDENT-ATHLETE & FUND UPDATES

Your endowed fund lives in perpetuity at BC and provides support to a student-athlete. You will have the opportunity to meet the recipient of your fund each year at our annual gathering and watch them as they grow as a student and athlete at BC.

ATHLETICS FINANCIAL AID ENDOWMENTS

A named financial aid fund may also be established with a commitment of $100,000. These funds are not able to be restricted to a specific sport nor assigned to a specific student-athlete. Instead, it adds much needed funds to the general athletics endowment in support of scholarships.

OPERATING ENDOWMENTS

Funds to help alleviate operating expenses may be established with a commitment of $100,000 or more and can be designated toward any of BC’s 31 varsity sports. For example, a soccer operating endowment could enhance the program annually by funding a special project such as updated film analytics software.

SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENTS

Each fall at the annual Scholarship Dinner, the student-athlete beneficiaries of endowed scholarships have the opportunity to connect with the donors that made their experience possible. In addition, the scholarship donor receives a full report on the student-athlete their gift has supported each year.
