The Office of Institutional Advancement
Here on the Hilltop, life-changing learning occurs every day. It couldn’t happen without you.
Since our founding in 1856, we have been blessed by the generosity of our alumni, students, parents, trustees, and friends. Because of your gifts, Birmingham-Southern continues to provide a transformative educational experience for some of the world’s best and brightest young people.
The Office of Institutional Advancement invites you to become a partner in the Birmingham-Southern experience—one that remains like no other. Gifts of every level play a role:
- Annual Fund gifts contribute some $2 million each year to scholarships and financial aid, faculty and staff salaries, and support for programs.
- Major gifts add to our endowment and continue to build our beautiful campus.
- Grants provide funds for special projects that keep BSC on the cutting edge of academia.
- Planned gifts through bequests and trusts set a strong path for our future.
The Office of Institutional Advancement acquires and stewards essential gift income which enables BSC to provide a distinctive liberal arts education, now and in perpetuity. Institutional Advancement supports students, faculty, and staff through the initiation and enhancement of lifelong relationships with all college constituencies, comprehensive fund-raising, personal care of donors, and the proper establishment and stewardship of permanent funds.
