On November 30, 2021, BU students, alumni, parents, faculty, and staff came together to give back and celebrate what makes them #ProudToBU. Every gift will make an even bigger impact on the BU schools, teams, and programs. We want to thank each and every one of our donors who has helped make this year’s Giving Tuesday a success.
