Since BCFO’s beginning, it was founder Mary Beth O’Reilly’s vision that one day BCFO would have an endowment to provide for future BCFO programs and services. Every year, BCFO donors have risen to the occasion by making special gifts to fund this endowment.
OUR GOAL? $25 million by 2020.

Ways to Ensure a Legacy of Hope
These gifts include currency, checks, ACH or wire transfers and credit or debit card charges.
Gifts can be made of stocks, bonds, or shares of a mutual or exchange traded fund. These gifts can be made by delivery of the physical certificates or electronically through a brokerage account.
BCFO can be named as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy, 401(K) plan or IRA. BCFO could also be named as the owner of the policy by endorsement from the insurance company and delivery of the policy to BCFO.
BCFO is named as a beneficiary of your will or trust. The amount of the bequest or distribution can be a specific dollar amount or a percentage of your estate.
Can be made using charitable remainder trusts or gift annuities.
If BCFO is named as the beneficiary of a charitable remainder trust, then after a set number of years, or a named individual’s lifetime, BCFO would receive the balance of the amount left. In a charitable lead trust BCFO would receive payments for the life of the trust with the remainder going back to the donor or other named beneficiary at the end of the term.
These deeds transfer real property to BCFO after the owner’s lifetime, as long as the deed is recorded and expressly states that it is not effective until the death of the owner.
BCFO can be designated to receive personal property by including (transfer on death) TOD BCFO on the title to a motor vehicle, boat, trailer, motor or other titled personal property. Similarly, BCFO can receive the proceeds from bank or brokerage accounts by adding (pay on death) POD BCFO after the owner’s name at the financial institution.
These can be established if the donor gives cash or securities to BCFO to purchase a fixed annuity payable to the individual donor for life.
