Practice : Spring 2012
The BAC can succeed in new and remarkable ways if we can leverage our Urban Sustainability funding into a Capital Improvements program; if our Annual fundraising for vital projects can reach an ever widening impact; if we ca n enjoin agencies, compa nies a nd foundations to support mutua l community and programmatic interests; if we can increase the already extensive support of firms to hire students and spon sor the Practice Department “Gateway Projects”; a nd if we can continue to mentor and enc ourage students in an ever exemplary lea rning environment. Annu a l ly, we seek funds for vital, mission related activities that a re ess entia l for what we teach — curriculum development, and new learning and practice program s; for how we teach—digital equipment, electronic cla ssrooms and faculty support; for where we teach—library systems, information literacy a nd online access; a nd for those who are engaged and purposef ul learning. We are c ommitted to urgent capita l projects to improve the BAC learning environment: to finish 951 Boylston Street a s a student center; to restore a nd renovate 320/322 Newbury Street as the center of teaching and learning: and to complete funding for the BAC Urban Sustainability initiative in Public Alley #444 project to install geothermal wells and rainwater rec apture to recharge the depleted aquifer and to serve a s an urban laboratory for Boston and beyond. As the BAC will celebrate its 125th Anniversary in December 2014, we are considering the future in important ways. We a re c ommitted to perpetuate the value s of those who have been and are now engaged in the College’s mission a nd we would like to inspire our special friends to leave a legacy at the BAC, to ma ke a “planned gift” now for the future. Bequests a re made by people who wa nt to make a differenc e in the lives of others, to demon strate their intere sts and convictions , to enjoy the honor of being recognized, a nd the satisfaction of enc ouraging others to give, too. Whether you are contributing to the A nnua l Fund, sta rting a scholarship fund, planning a Legacy Gift, helping to finish a building or pledging a gift, your thoughtfulness and generosity create s opportunities for BAC students to bec ome leaders in design. The BAC’s tradition s a re the living result of e xperience; we invite your c ontinued engagement in sustaining the BAC and to embellish the patina of its legacy into the future. Sincerely, Christopher Cox, Vice President of Institutional Advancement Anna Ahearn, M.Arch PRACTICE 56 IA ] PHILANTHROPY REPORT
