When a top business school at a highly ranked research university dares to change the way business is taught and business is done, radical things happen—including receiving a gift from the person who rewrote the rules of retailing. Thanks to a record-breaking $50 million gift from Allen Questrom (Questrom’64, Hon.’15) and his wife Kelli (Hon.’15), and The Allen & Kelli Questrom Foundation, we’re forging ahead as Boston University Questrom School of Business.

Among other initiatives, the Questroms’ transformational gift will be used to endow 10 new faculty chairs, which will enhance the research and teaching of Questrom. Their donation also provides seed funding for the addition of a 60,000-square-foot facility that will connect to our existing Rafik B. Hariri Building.

Like the Questroms’ powerful pledge, all endowed gifts have a lasting impact. Your donation today will support the School for generations to come. The gift will be invested, and the income generated through it will fund your passion at Questrom in perpetuity.

Named and endowed gifts can honor a family member or a professor who changed your life, or preserve your family legacy. Endowed funds take the shape of student financial aid as scholarships and fellowships, faculty support as professorships, lectureships and research funds, and various other vehicles to support life at Questrom.
