Annual Fund Leadership Giving Societies

Boston University is proud to honor the distinguished group of leadership donors who, year after year, help the University to prepare young people for success.

Membership in the Giving Societies recognizes donors who make a gift without restriction to a BU Annual Fund. Depending upon how you designate your gift, you will become a member of one of BU’s Societies. As a member of a Society, you will be part of a vital support system for BU’s pursuit of excellence. Through your vision and generosity, you will be an inspiration to others. We hope you will consider joining us.


A message from BU Alumni Council President Buletza

“I hope you will join me and over 1,700 other Giving Society members by making an Annual Fund leadership gift. Your generosity will provide Boston University with the resources it needs to reach even greater levels of success in the future.”
