I Heart BC was established by the Philanthropic Development office in 2013. Its mission is to foster a positive mindset of appreciation, loyalty and pride towards Brevard College amongst students and parents, faculty and staff, and alumni and friends in order to increase involvement and provide a foundation for future support. We organize events and activities that encourage fellowship, aim to create tradition, and raise awareness of the importance of giving.
I Heart BC Day is a day of celebration during which the BC family celebrates Brevard College by giving back time, love and support! During I Heart BC Day, alumni, parents, friends, faculty, staff and students come together and support Brevard College.

I Heart BC manages the annual senior gift campaign. We encourage students, especially seniors to provide a gift of $18.53 in honor of the year Brevard College was established. Students can make their donation at the annual Grad Fair or on I Heart BC Day.
I Heart BC partners with the Brevard College Alumni Association (BCAA) to foster engagement between students and alumni
I Heart BC partners with the Board of Visitors and the Transylvania County area to foster engagement between BC and the community. This year our Board of Visitor’s President, Dr. Mark Lemel is challenging board members to support I Heart BC Day. If their goal of 100% participation is reached Dr. Lemel will take a pie in the face on campus on I Heart BC Day.
