Summer 2014

Light the World

It’s been an exciting year of giving to BC Law. We are pleased to announce that FY14 was a record-breaking year. The Office of Advancement raised an impressive $6.7 million in new gifts and pledges, surpassing by far the past total raised for BC Law in a single year. This record total is over 55 percent higher than the last three-year average and more than 60 percent higher than the last ten-year average. Just as impressive, last year we saw a 10 percent increase in the number of donors making gifts to BC Law as compared to the past two years. “The response from our community is spectacular,” says Jessica Cashdan, executive director of advancement and associate dean of BC Law. “This past year marks a very important moment for BC Law and positions us for success as we approach the final stretch of the Light the World campaign.” For more details about our FY14 fundraising achievements, please watch for the Report of Giving in the winter issue of the BC Law Magazine.

BC Law’s campaign commitments include outright gifts and pledges made between June 1, 2004 and the present.
