BGA’s endowment enhances our ability to fulfill our mission now and for many years to come. Increasing annually as a result of generous donors, prudent investing, and careful spending, now is the time to bolster that growth through significant contributions.
Gifts to Creating Our Future
As part of Creating Our Future, donors may establish new named funds or contribute to existing funds. In certain cases, there is a minimum gift required to establish a new fund. Gifts may be in the form of an outright gift or multi-year pledge. Additionally, some donors may decide to make a gift through a planned gift. Please contact a member of the Advancement Staff if you have made or are considering a planned gift to the school.
Existing Named Funds
Over the years, numerous BGA alumni and families have created and contributed to named endowment funds to honor members of the BGA community that have had a significant impact on their experiences at the school. Below are a few examples of existing named funds:
- The Fleming Scholars Fund, which supports the school’s financial aid program. The fund is named in memory of three members of the Fleming family who graduated from BGA in the 1920s.
- The James B. Akin ’26 Endowment Fund was established in honor of Mr. Akin, who taught and coached at BGA for 32 years. The fund provides professional development funds for the faculty.
- The Helen & Ralph Brown ’49 Spirit Medal and the David A. Hernandez ‘49 Award are among the school’s most respected awards given at commencement.
- The W.D. Mooney English Medal is presented annually to the senior with the highest scholastic average in English.
