The BAC Fund

The BAC Fund gives you an easy way to support both our students and the College. This unrestricted annual fund is designed to raise money for the BAC’s areas of greatest need. 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.

The BAC Fund immediately enhances our students' design education by funding resources for financial aid, curriculum development, student academic services, technology, and investments in our faculty.

Areas of Support

In addition to The BAC Fund, there are a variety of ways to support the college - whether you want to donate to the Student Scholarships Fund, the President’s Innovation Fund, support a specific program or school of study, or even start your own student scholarship! Our staff can help you determine which area of support is right for you.
