Gifts made to the Flynn Fund afford the Athletics department flexibility to apply funds wherever they’re needed most. This type of support provides the essential elements needed to recruit and retain student-athletes who can be competitive both on the field and in the classroom.
FLYNN FUND GIVING
Current-use gifts provide an immediate boost for important department priorities, including travel expenses, equipment or apparel needs, and helping to fund scholarships not covered by the endowment. The quickest way for BC to grow competitively is to increase our current-use revenue, enabling our coaches to make greater investments in their programs.
For example, our women’s basketball team was able to fund an overseas trip to Italy through current-use support. The trip achieved two important goals: It allowed the team to benefit from extra training days against a new level of competition; and it enhanced recruiting as our coaches were able to speak to prospective student-athletes about the unique opportunity to travel overseas as part of their BC Women’s Basketball experience.
Here are some examples of how your gift makes a difference:
- $150 grants a new pair of sneakers for the men’s basketball players
- $3,000 purchases a pitching machine for baseball training
- $12,000 funds an offseason trip for women’s lacrosse, an opportunity to face top-25 opponents outside of New England
