Growing the number of gifts and dollars raised for the “unrestricted” BAF is a top priority for St. Bonaventure’s Athletics Department. While it is always the right of the donor to select where he or she prefers their gift to go, the BAF staff asks donors to consider allocating at least half of their annual donation to “unrestricted.”
The impact of unrestricted BAF gifts:
- They allow the Athletics Department to budget with confidence each year knowing the history of gifts to BAF unrestricted.
- Provides funding for opportunities that may arise; for example, the 2016 purchase of video streaming equipment was funded by gifts to BAF unrestricted. This purchase may otherwise have been impossible.
