Contributing To The Baylor Line Foundation

The Baylor Line Foundation is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that is dependent on the generosity of our supporters to continue the legacy we started in 1859. We are incredibly grateful for the partnership of our members and donors.

On this page you will find several ways that you can make a donation to our organization. Your dollars are used to fund student scholarships, host alumni events, continue production of The Baylor Line magazine, and advance our operations. We believe that our mission to elevate the voice of Baylor alumni is more critical than ever, and we hope you will partner with us in this endeavor.


Publication of The Baylor Line

The Baylor Line magazine is one of the foundations of our organization. To put it simply, The Baylor Line is who we are. Since the first issue in 1946, The Baylor Line has continued to represent the independent voices of alumni. This award-winning publication is the vehicle for giving a voice to Baylor alumni. To give toward the Baylor Line’s publication, click here.

Sustaining Gifts

Sustaining gifts include a variety of programs, including events, alumni engagement, and memorials & tributes. As The Baylor Line Foundation continues to grow, sustaining gifts become even more important for us to continue serving Baylor alumni. Sustaining gifts are given above and beyond membership dues to support one of the aforementioned categories.

If you are a life member, you can still contribute an annual sustaining gift that goes toward the most important needs of the organization at the time.

In 2017, The Baylor Line Foundation gave more than $100k in scholarships to Baylor legacy students. No other organization gives this much to scholarships, which furthers our impact on the university.

Contributing to the general scholarship fund enables students to explore the many opportunities Baylor has to offer. Our desire is to continue increasing the amount given to scholarships each year. To contribute toward the scholarship fund, click here.

In addition, The Baylor Line Foundation provides the opportunity to fund an Endowed Scholarship. For more information on this, please contact Allen Holt at

1859 Society

The 1859 Society was created to recognize those who support the mission and programs of the Baylor Line Foundation by providing financial resources through provisions in their estates. These gifts can be transformational for the organization. They provide opportunities for the BLF to expand and enhance its programs that engage with Baylor University and her alumni and students. The Baylor Line Foundation (and the Baylor Family) will be forever grateful to all who choose to leave a lasting and enduring legacy that benefits future generations of Baylor graduates.

If you would like more information on the 1859 Society, or you’ve already included a gift through your will or estate plan to the Baylor Line Foundation, please let us know. We would like to thank you for your generous commitment and welcome you to the 1859 Society!  BLF CEO Allen Holt would be delighted to help you and your advisers identify your charitable giving options. You may reach him at or by calling 1-888-710-1859.  Thank you for considering a testamentary gift to the Baylor Line Foundation.
