Giving matters. Thank you for choosing to give to Goldey-Beacom College. Your generosity significantly impacts current and future students as well as the College's sustainability.

There are many ways to give – the Annual Fund which has provided more than $17 million annually in student scholarships, the Department of Athletics which manages 13 NCAA sports and endowed family scholarships just to name a few. A list of opportunities is below.


Annual Scholarship Fund

Stay Gold Campaign

Preserving the Legacy of our Distinguished Alumni

The numerous accolades and achievements of our Distinguished Alumni are currently housed in the annex of the Fulmer Center, where their framed photos have been yellowing and languishing for several years in a place where fellow alumni don’t always necessarily know where to find them.

The GBC Alumni Association has launched a new initiative to honor and preserve the legacies of these distinguished men and women. This initiative is called the Stay Gold Campaign, and its mission is to dramatically update the appearance of the gallery by transforming it into a digital design that many future generations of Bolts can access easily and appreciate. In addition, the Alumni Association plans to move the location of the gallery to a much more central location- the main wall of the Event Center lobby where it will have prime visibility. Many of you may recall the iconic pop culture phrase "stay gold" from the 1980's. It is derived from the motion picture based upon the novel "The Outsiders", written by author S.E. Hinton. In the novel and the movie, the phrase 'stay gold' serves as a reminder to cling tightly to that hour when you were at your finest, your purest, your best. For some of you, that hour may well have been during your years at Goldey-Beacom.

We invite each of you to contribute to this campaign as a way of preserving the legacy not just of our distinguished alumni featured in the gallery, but our entire alumni community. Gifts to this fund will provide you the opportunity to preserve your own legacy on the wall of generous donors in the form of a permanent engraved plaque.

To give you an idea of what the Distinguished Alumni Gallery looks like presently, as compared to an artist's rendering of a new design for 2022, here are 'before' and 'after' photos to provide you with a sense of the exciting transformation that we have planned. Please consider helping us to reach that goal!
