Giving to the BAC

Your generosity plays a key role in all we do at the BAC! No matter how you choose to support the college, you are enhancing everything that ensures we are always providing a distinctive educational experience for all our students.

A gift to the BAC is an investment in our students and the future.

Help Share the Power of Design

Making Design Education Accessible to All

By contributing to the Pre-College Design Access Fund, you can support a student’s introduction to design this summer and beyond. With your help, ALL students interested in design can attend our Pre-College summer offerings—Summer Academy and the Urban Design & Planning Fellowship — as well as future opportunities.

Now through June 30, we come together to make the BAC’s Pre-College Programs available to all high school students, regardless of their financial status.

Every gift, no matter its size, helps make the BAC’s design literacy programs more inclusive, diverse, and equitable for all.

For James A. Barrett, AIA, B.Arch’87, supporting learners in their journeys is a passion that runs deep, overflowing from his workday and into his free time. The BAC’s Pre-College Access Fund will enable young adults to access collegiate-level studies that would otherwise not be available to them. The purpose lies close to Jim’s heart.
