The Power of Parent Philanthropy IMPACT REPORT


welcome from the


Dear parents,


parents of new and returning students, you are vitally important members of the Boston College community, and I want to extend my greetings and welcome to you as the 2012–2013 academic year begins.

Boston College was established by members of the Society of Jesus in 1863 to educate children of mainly Irish immigrants. This fall, we are launching our Sesquicentennial Celebration. Our 150th anniversary is an opportunity to give thanks for many blessings received in past decades, reflect on our institutional heritage and mission, and dream and reach into the future with renewed vision and goals. Since its founding, Boston College has changed in location, size, scope, and complexity; but it remains committed to being the best possible institution of higher education it can be and also faithful to its Jesuit, Catholic roots. In particular, we strive to help all on our campus, especially students, identify and develop their gifts so that they can be a leaven for good in wider society. I am grateful for your support and presence and also for the ways in which you assist Boston College. With you and our other alumni and friends, BC will be able to continue working for the greater glory of God as it has done for almost 150 years. Sincerely,

William P. Leahy, S.J. President PARENT IMPACT REPORT

Dear friends,


are so pleased that you have chosen to become a Boston College family. From the very beginning, we have felt welcome on campus and hope you, too, view the Heights as home.

The University offers our children nearly limitless opportunities for academic and personal growth, from exploring exciting new ideas in the classroom to embarking on volunteer service trips to participating in athletics and arts programs. The BC student experience is truly life-changing, and we are most grateful that you have chosen to support the University’s mission. Your philanthropy and volunteer spirit have an immediate impact on today’s undergraduates—and create a wonderful family tradition of giving to Boston College. Thank you for making a difference at BC. We hope you will find, as we do, that the more you do to advance our University community, the more you receive in return. Warm regards,

mission statement The Parents’ Leadership Council provides parents with unique opportunities to connect to Boston College and advance its Jesuit, Catholic mission. Council members play a dynamic role in BC’s success through annual support of the Parents’ Fund and other BC initiatives—and through their gifts of time and talent. They serve as ambassadors at special events, including programs with the University president, and present Boston College leaders with the parent perspective—often communicating with fellow parents on BC’s behalf, advising the University on strategies to engage parents, and promoting programs at the Heights and across the country.

lead by example The Parents’ Leadership Council Executive Committee invites all Gasson Society members to increase their connection to the Heights and touch the lives of today’s BC students. ▶Contact new parents in early fall to welcome them to the BC family ▶Participate in Parents’ Weekend events, regional receptions, Masses, and more

▶Promote Parents’ Fund outreach by making parent-to-parent fundraising calls, contributing to fundraising strategy, and representing the Parents’ Fund at University functions

▶Host a First Year Sendoff or other BC gathering for fellow parents ▶Provide career advice or internship opportunities to current students

To take advantage of these special opportunities, please contact Rebecca Holden, assistant director of Parent Development, at or 617-552-0966.

Light the World is the most ambitious fundraising campaign in the history of Jesuit, Catholic education and has four main goals: raise $1.5 billion for vital priorities, expand volunteer engagement, increase alumni donor participation, and secure BC’s future through legacy giving.

We initially supported Boston College because of the warm welcome we received on campus. We’ve stayed involved because the BC community offers incredible opportunities—from experiencing Pops on the Heights and hosting First Year Sendoffs to joining panel discussions and advancing parent fundraising.”
