Donor Recognition

Boston University is devoted to the generous alumni, parents, faculty, staff, volunteers, corporations, and foundations who help BU excel every day. Their contributions of time and money allow the University to provide the diverse opportunities that define BU as a world-class institution.

Though every gift is as unique as its donor, there are some overriding motivations and/or values that our donors share: The desire to provide opportunity for students to access a BU education; the drive to add new knowledge to the world’s canon; loyalty to the school or college that helped make them who they are today, and more. Peruse this section to learn more about why someone might choose to make a gift to BU—and what you can accomplish by making your own contribution.

Boston University is indeed fortunate to be able to count upon dedicated alumni, parents, and friends who share the same overriding goal: the success of this University in the pursuit of our mission.”
