Make a Gift

Your gift to the Economics Department at BU will make a huge difference. Donations help us to provide additional financial support and research opportunities for our students, organize meet-and-greet occasions for maintaining alumni connections, and enrich the intellectual life of the Department by bringing distinguished scholars and practitioners to the University. These activities, made possible by and enhanced through donor support, contribute to the vibrancy of the Department, the strength of its community of graduates, and our work in the larger domains of economic ideas and economic policies.

For example, the inaugural speaker for our new Paul Streeten Distinguished Lecturer was Economics Nobel Prize winner Professor Joseph Stiglitz, who spoke about the important policy issue of “Multilateralism & Development” to an audience of our students, faculty, and alumni.

Thank you for supporting the Economics Department, and please consider making a contribution via this secure page!
