Northern California Regional Campaign Committee

Our Mission

The Northern California Regional Campaign Committee is a group of enthusiastic and generous alumni, parents, and friends who work to strengthen the BU community in Northern California, advance the success of The Campaign for Boston University, and provide support to local students who aspire to receive a Boston University education.

The Committee is both a working group and a public way for the University to recognize our leading advocates and supporters in the region.


The NCRCC will work to:

  • establish a leadership group to help create a strategic engagement plan to help further strengthen the Boston University network in Northern California,
  • explore and develop opportunities to make an impact on the educational experience of students from Northern California attending Boston University,
  • provide opportunities to connect and socialize with other leading members of the Northern California BU community in exclusive, comfortable settings,
  • and establish a platform that will support and provide feedback on the key strategic initiatives of the University.



Each member commits to:

  • an annual gift of $10,000 or more to BU throughout the life of the campaign or their committee tenure,
  • attending campaign leadership events, when available,
  • being open to hosting a campaign cultivation event in their area,
  • and strategizing with BU Development staff and campaign leadership, particularly when it comes to identifying and introducing potential campaign supporters and leaders.
