There are many ways to support BU, and volunteering is a great one.

Check out opportunities to help out.

Gifts to BU take many forms, and many of our supporters choose to give generously of their time and expertise. Alumni, students, parents, and friends can be involved with Boston University in a variety of ways.

One great opportunity is the Global Days of Service, where service-minded participants volunteer with BU (on their own or with family and friends) to organize service sites around the world. The event provides a cohesive, organized global effort to further the ethic of service that the BU family encourages and demonstrates. It also offers a unique opportunity for current students to work with alumni—and for alumni to reconnect with their classmates while giving back to their communities.
