Legacy Gifts

The Bakersfield Catholic Education Foundation has been blessed with gifts from families and friends that have allowed the foundation to establish scholarships named in memory of, or in honor of, a member of the Garces community. Some have been donations in memory of a loved one who has passed and others have been through estate planning or outright gifts. Click on the links below to read examples of how families are establishing a lasting legacy at Garces Memorial through the BCE Foundation.

If you are interested in information about how to establish a lasting legacy through estate planning, memorial donations, or an outright gift, please contact Cindy Meek at or Lou Ann Durrett at
