ways to give
support a scholarship
providing tuition scholarship assistance helps students continue their education. many of the scholarships at bbc have been formed and named to make strong statements about what the donors believe is important in ministerial preparation. scholarships can be funded in estates, as memorial gifts, or as gifts during the donor’s lifetime.
our development department is ready to help you use your generosity and imagination to create and fund a scholarship or feel free to support one of these existing funds:
- internal scholarship fund: funded through our general fund for academic excellence, leadership potential, need, or service to the college.
- cornelius scholarship: annually funded and awarded to deserving students who show strong leadership potential.
- medal of honor scholarship:this fund honors bob maxwell, an oregon resident and recipient of the congressional medal of honor for his acts of sacrifice and service in world war ii.

the perfect gift to honor someone who has everything they need. donate to commemorate the life of a special person or in memory of a loved one.
the college is seeking many new, or like-new, tangible items to use in the offices, classrooms, kitchen or dormitory. individuals making a gift from our wish list will receive a non-cash donation receipt to use for tax purposes.
estate planning gifts
there are three ways that donors can give to bbc through estate planning:
- give through a will
- give through a living trust, or
- give through a charitable gift annuity.
many friends have chosen to remember bbc as a beneficiary in their wills so that their contributions to the school continue even at their death.
other donors chose to form a living trust. we partner with financial planning ministry who will form your living trust at no cost if you designate bbc as a beneficiary.
with charitable gift annuities, the individual transfers money or securities to bbc as part of an agreement that guarantees you a fixed income for life. in addition, you will receive a tax deduction and avoid paying taxes on a significant portion of the annuity income.
stock or property gift
giving a gift of stock allows you to avoid paying high capital gains taxes and lower your cost of giving a gift. if you would like to transfer stock to bbc, you must contact your broker and ask that a specific number of shares of a specific stock be transferred to boise bible college as a gift. please contact our business office for more details on making a stock transfer.
insurance policy gift
leave boise bible college a large gift through the low cost of premiums. set up a policy with your broker, name bbc as the owner and beneficiary, and the premiums are tax deductible.
building fund support
these gifts are used entirely as directed by the donor, but at the discretion of the college. the college is in a long-term construction project to expand its housing capacity. designating your gift to the building fund will help us achieve that goal.
our desire is to accumulate sufficient funds to complete phase iii of the student housing project. the groundwork and foundation, more students are coming and the time will come to complete the residence hall complex. please consider making a commitment to help us finish this important project.
