Thank You for Your Support

Thank you for your interest in supporting The Boston Architectural College! Every gift—large or small—makes an extraordinary difference to our students and our mission every day.

How to Make a Gift

The easiest, most efficient way to make a one-time or recurring gift is by credit card using our secure online giving form.

You can donate, update your contact information, and talk about your BAC experience by calling the Office of Institutional Advancement at (617) 585-0107.

To give by mail with a check:

  1. Make your check payable to Boston Architectural College.
  2. On the check’s memo line or in an attached note, please specify how you would like to designate your gift. If you do not include a designation, your gift will be put to work right away through the BAC Fund, providing essential resources for the College's current operational expenses.
  3. Mail your gift to:

Boston Architectural College
ATTN: Office of Institutional Advancement
320 Newbury Street
Boston, MA 02115

Many employers sponsor matching-gift programs and will match charitable contributions made by their employees. Your employer’s human resources department can supply you with specific instructions about its process for matching gifts. To ensure a seamless transaction, please provide your organization with the email address giving@the-bac.edu when you submit your match request. If you need the BAC’s EIN (Employer Identification Number) to complete the form, it is 04-2271070. For assistance with this process, you can contact the Office of Institutional Advancement at (617) 585-0107 or giving@the-bac.edu.

To make a gift of securities held by your bank or broker,

1) Provide your broker with detailed instructions of the gift you would like to make to The Boston Architectural College, including the name of the stock and the number of shares to be transferred from your account to the BAC at:

Fidelity Investments

DTC (Depository Trust Company) #0226

Account #X19-083151

Reference: Donor's Name and Gift Designation

2) Then, please contact The Boston Architectural College’s Office of Institutional Advancement at (617) 585-0107 or giving@the-bac.edu to let us know the name of the stock and the number of shares that you will be transferring to the BAC account at Fidelity. This information will help us provide you with proper gift acknowledgement in a timely manner.

In certain cases, The Boston Architectural College will accept items of tangible personal property (including art, collectibles, books, equipment), and other personal assets or materials of value as a gift. In-kind gifts must first be approved by the College’s leadership before being accepted. The Office of Institutional Advancement can provide additional information on this process.

Making a planned gift is one of the most meaningful ways to support the BAC and its mission while accommodating your own personal, financial, estate-planning, and philanthropic goals. Bequests and other testamentary gifts contribute to the BAC’s future financial strength and continued academic excellence. A gift to the College through your estate plans qualifies you as a member of the 1889 Society, created to recognize and thank donors whose foresight is building the future of the BAC. For more information about documenting your intentions, please contact Heather Sullivan at heather.sullivan@the-bac.edu or 617-585-0281.

A donor advised fund (DAF) is a mechanism that simplifies the administrative burden of fulfilling your philanthropic objectives. You can recommend grants to The Boston Architectural College from your fund and designate them as you wish.
