Impacting Lives through Giving

Endowed Giving

Impacting Lives through GivingEndowed gifts help secure the future success and quality of our programs and resources for our faculty and students. Because we use the interest from endowed gifts and preserve the principal, the gift legacy is kept alive and grows. We also offer naming opportunities with endowed gifts that provide an everlasting tribute to their namesake. Several types of endowments exist, such as: 

  • Faculty Chairs or Professorships – This type of endowment attracts prestigious faculty to the BCOE and retains them.
  • Scholarships – Endowed scholarships help many BCOE students for several generations. Donors have the opportunity to name the scholarship in honor of a loved one or a mentor.

Annual Giving

  • Charitable Trusts - Set up a trust to support the college and help provide you with a lifetime income.
  • Charitable Gift Annuities - Make a charitable gift to the college today and you can receive future income benefits.
