How will your Contribution be used?


100% of the contributors will be earmarked for the general daily operations of the university.


Why should I Donate?


We know many alumni and friends of B-CU typically prefer to give to scholarships, endowments, etc. However, in light of the threat to our daily operations, recent layoffs, furloughs, and risk of losing accreditation due to financial challenges, WE MUST begin to shore up the general operations of the university. If we do not have the fund to operate the institution, restricted funds currently earmarked for scholarships and other causes will be unusable.


Organizers of this Campaign


Campus Alumni who are current employees (Faculty & staff) at B-CU; Their contribution to kick off this campaign is $15,000 - given the recent University furloughs.
