The BAC Fund
Unrestricted annual support to the BAC provides essential resources for the College's current operational expenses. While we are a tuition-driven organization, student tuition only provides a portion of the funds needed to run the BAC in the 21st century. Gifts to the BAC Fund immediately enhance our students' design education by funding resources for curriculum development, student academic services, technology, and investments in our faculty.
Build The Endowment
A strong permanent endowment is the most important guarantee of the Boston Architectural College's long-term fiduciary health and success. Endowed funds ensure that the College will provide future generations of our students and faculty with the resources necessary for continued excellence in design education. Individuals or groups may endow a fund at the BAC with a minimum gift of $50,000.
Financial Aid Scholarships
The BAC provides an excellent design education to students for whom this opportunity is not ordinarily accessible. Our students are committed, working in practice firms during the day and learning in the classrooms in the evening. In addition to their work and study load, each semester our students struggle to finance their tuition. Grant aid and loans only cover a fraction of a student's tuition cost. Paying for education should not be a barrier to learning. Financial aid scholarships enable our students to afford their education, which increases enrollment and retention and improves graduation rates. Studying at the BAC is a significant investment in a student's future in the design industry, and your philanthropic investment will impact future generations of emerging design professionals.
Faculty and Staff Development Funds
The BAC is committed to investing in our faculty and staff to enhance their professional and scholarly knowledge. Faculty & Staff Development Funds recognize their exemplary work and commitment to the Boston Architectural College's mission. These funds provide the recipients with funding for professional travel to attend and present at conferences, travel for research, and expenses for professional development education. Faculty & Staff Development Funds also enable the BAC to increase its exposure and visibility at other institutions and across the design professions beyond the greater Boston area.
