The Cleary Legacy

Deeply passionate about philanthropy, higher education, and the arts, the late Barbara and James F. Cleary ’50, H’93, founded the annual Pops on the Heights BC scholarship gala in 1993. Jim—a BC Trustee and founder of the Fides and President’s Circle annual giving societies—and Barbara worked tirelessly to help grow the event to become the University’s largest annual fundraiser, which has raised more than $130 million in Pops scholarships. Today, Jim and Barbara’s children (Kara ’84, MA’91; Kristin ’89, JD’93; and James Jr., P’18) continue their legacy as Pops benefactors.
