The 1889 Legacy Society recognizes and honors all individuals who provide support for the BAC in their wills, trusts, life income gifts, retirement plans, life insurance designations, and other planned gifts.

Members of the 1889 Legacy Society are invited to special gatherings and are recognized for their foresight and commitment to the long-term vision for the College's future. Named for the year in which the BAC was founded, the 1889 Legacy Society recognizes the vital role benefactors have played over our 125-year history. Beginning with the BAC's first bequest of $5,000 from Boston Architectural Club member Arthur Rotch, and continuing with the many donors who have followed, a planned gift at the BAC is the ultimate expression of confidence in our future.

Membership enables the College to thank and recognize you for the future plans you have made today and to inspire generosity in others. Legacy gifts have an enduring effect at the BAC, as they help to ensure the College's future for generations of emerging design professionals.

Individuals who have informed the BAC of their estate planning will automatically become members of the 1889 Legacy Society.
