The Boston University Loyalty Society

Consistent giving to Boston University is crucial. As one of the largest private universities in the country and a leading global research and teaching institution, BU relies on the annual generosity of its donors to help strengthen programs, explore new opportunities, and attract outstanding teaching staff—all necessary parts of an excellent Boston University education.

The Loyalty Society was created to honor BU’s most loyal alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and friends. These generous individuals understand that consecutive annual investments, no matter the size, transform lives.

Society Benefits

The Loyalty Society recognizes committed donors who support BU with gifts of any amount to any of the University’s funds. Donors qualify for membership upon their second consecutive fiscal year of giving or immediately after committing to a recurring gift or multi-year pledge. Members receive:

  • recognition in online donor roster and other materials
  • gift-impact communications
  • annual printed Boston University wall calendars (digital versions here)
  • invitations to special donor-recognition and campus-wide marquee events (including Alumni Weekend and Winterfest)
  • access to on-campus lectures (in person or online)

Milestone perks
