Support Asian Studies at BU

Giving to Boston University

Why should you support Boston University? Although alumni, parents, friends, and institutional partners of BU all have their own compelling answer to this question, there are some overriding motivations that many of our donors share.

Our donors want to give back to the University (and often to the school or college) that—in fundamental ways—helped make them who they are today.

They also want to give forward: helping the next generation of deserving students from around the world gain access to a BU education, and helping our outstanding faculty and researchers add to the world’s store of knowledge. They want to support BU’s interdisciplinary and boundary-crossing research, which is making lives better, on both individual and societal levels. And they want to support President Robert A. Brown’s vision of a campus that is opportunity-rich for its students and faculty, and fully supportive of the undergraduate educational experience.
