Giving Opportunities

Sargent Cares Emergency Fund

We have created a new, immediate-assistance fund called the Sargent Cares Emergency Fund to support Sargent students and the College during the COVID-19 crisis. We primarily use gifts to the Sargent Cares fund to provide emergency support to current students above and beyond traditional financial aid. These grants help students recover from unexpected losses of employment (both their own and their families’), lend technology support, and, above all, keep students enrolled at BU.

SAR Annual Fund

More than 1,000 generous alumni and friends contributed to the Sargent Annual Fund last year. Some say donating is their way of giving back for the personal and professional opportunities they found here. Some give to say “thank you” for the exceptional Sargent faculty and staff—or the support of their alumni predecessors. Others give for the future, to make an investment in excellent faculty, state-of-the-art facilities, and the best educational experience for tomorrow’s students

Of any single fund, the Sargent Annual Fund has the greatest impact on our College. It supports our faculty, research, technology and course offerings and strengthens our ability to recruit and financially assist some of the brightest, most talented students in the field. Advantages like these help us maintain outstanding national rankings for our programs. As a result, our students and ultimately our alumni have a true competitive advantage.

Our sincere thanks to all who give.

The Campaign for Boston University

One of the goals of the Campaign for Boston University is to double the number of people who support BU financially every fiscal year. Building our donor base is an ambitious goal—but it is an important one. It will cement our place amongst the country’s top educational institutions, and will make a bold statement about the pride that BU’s alumni, parents, and friends feel in their alma mater. Give now to be part of the historic Campaign for Boston University and help us support our incredible students and faculty.
