The BSC Annual Fund
The Annual Fund is an unrestricted source of funding that supports the day-to-day expenses of the college. Without a successful Annual Fund, BSC would not be able to offer scholarships to assist the most talented students or salaries to hire and keep the most gifted professors and staff. Transformative learning takes place on the Hilltop each day. The Annual Fund invites you to be a part of it through giving.
As an alumnus of Birmingham-Southern, your donation to the annual fund will also boost the college’s key alumni giving percentage. In the eyes of large foundation and corporation grant donors, this number is an important indicator of alumni satisfaction. A gift of any size from an alumnus will raise the alumni giving percentage, thus putting BSC in a better position to obtain necessary grants.
Help BSC move “Forward, Ever!”
The Annual Fund plays an important role in securing the college’s future. With the support of the Annual Fund, BSC students will graduate ready to positively impact the world through law, medicine, art, science, business, and education, just as ‘Southern alumni always have.
Growth and success
The Annual Fund raised an unprecedented $2,047,376 with an alumni giving percentage of 34% in the fiscal year ending May 2012. In that same time period, the Annual Fund grew by 67% and the alumni giving percentage increased by six percentage points. This growth would not be possible without the phenomenal support of BSC’s alumni, parents, and friends and the positive momentum created by the Greek Battle and the BSC Family Challenge. The Annual Fund’s goals for 2012 include raising $2 million again and increasing the alumni giving percentage to 40%. Help us meet our goals!
