When considering a gift to BMC, you are really making an investment in the lives of the next generation of committed women and men. There are several methods by which you can make that investment.
GROW BMC is a seven-year strategic enrollment plan that involves three strategic initiatives:
- Academic Program Review
- Expansion of Athletic Teams
- Expansion of Extracurricular Activities
GROW BMC will allow us to ensure our long-term financial health, reward faculty and staff with much-needed salary increases, and construct or upgrade campus facilities to support an engaged learning and living community. Facilities to be built include the Sportsplex, a math/science building, a library annex, a band hall, and residential housing.
Planning for the future of BMC will require a significant financial investment: the entire project will run an estimated $12,000,000. Giving to support GROW BMC ensures that our beloved College is here to prepare future generations who will enter to grow in wisdom and depart to serve.

Contributions to the BMC Great Expectations fund enable the College to complete short-term projects that have an immediate impact on student life. These projects are ideal options for members of classes and clubs who want to collaborate in giving back to their alma mater.

The Blue Mountain College Annual Fund
Can one person really make a difference? At Blue Mountain College, the answer is "yes." Each one of us has the opportunity to invest in Blue Mountain College. The BMC Annual Fund provides the opportunity for one to make his/her mark on the College through gifts that address immediate needs. Contributions to the Annual Fund enable the College to maintain its commitment to academic excellence without passing the entire cost on to students. Stated another way, a gift to the Annual Fund helps fill the gap that exists between the cost of providing a BMC education and the amount that students are asked to pay. Every gift, no matter the size, matters!
The Blue Mountain College Endowment FundThe BMC Endowment Fund is a trust fund whose income, but not the principal sum, can be expended to support the College. Because the principal remains intact into perpetuity, the donation has a much greater impact over a longer period of time than if it were spent all at once. Endowed scholarships fit into this category as do deferred gifts such as living trusts, annuity trusts, and unitrusts.
Palmer-Donnell House RenovationWhen fully renovated, the Palmer-Donnell House will be the Welcome Center and Alumni House for Blue Mountain College. Donors can give to the Palmer-Donnell House through sponsorships, purchasing commemorative bricks, or purchasing prints and notecards with paintings of the house.
