Annual Giving

Within Boston University Athletics, annual giving truly makes the difference. It gives leaders the freedom to back programs and initiatives they believe in, thereby infusing programs with life and vitality.

It also provides BU Athletics and our coaches with the resources we need to respond to unexpected challenges and important opportunities for our student-athletes, such as:

  • 47% – National and global travel opportunities to out-of-conference tournaments and tours
  • 22% – Student-athlete support services, including the information, resources, and encouragement that help student-athletes get the most from their BU experience
  • 12% – Team development and training, bringing teammates together and enabling the team to host elite exhibition tournaments
  • 14% – State-of-the-art program enhancements, including team facility upgrades to ensure an environment conducive to growth and success
  • 1% – Professional development, to ensure that the BU student-athlete experience benefits players for a lifetime

The Chance of a Lifetime

Each and every gift provides our student-athletes with the chance of a lifetime to achieve their dreams. Your investment in their success has a direct impact on their BU experience—and on their lives well beyond graduation.
