Baruch College Fund
The Baruch College Fund (BCF) is the fundraising arm of Baruch College. Inspired by Bernard M. Baruch's gift, The Baruch College Fund was founded in 1970 as a nonprofit organization whose purpose is to promote the educational welfare of the students of Baruch College. Gifts to the Fund pay for student programs and services, bolster financial aid, retain Baruch's teaching faculty, and give the College flexibility to meet its most pressing needs throughout the year.
The Baruch College Fund encourages all donors to become involved with the College by mentoring, serving on advisory boards or committees, and participating in the annual telefund drive. There are also many opportunities to make a difference through a gift. The Fund's 17 Lex Society recognizes donors who give $1,000 or more to the Baruch College Fund, with tiered recognition levels for the more recent classes, while alumni who include Baruch in their estate plans are invited to join the Baruch Benchmark Society.
Located in the Gramercy Park neighborhood of New York City, Baruch College is a senior college of the City University of New York system (CUNY), and houses three schools: the Zicklin School of Business (the largest business school in the United States), the Weissman School of Arts & Sciences, and the School of Public Affairs.
