Participation Matters!

Babson, with our well-deserved reputation for academic and entrepreneurial excellence, is consistently ranked among the world’s best business schools in every metric except one: alumni giving participation.

The percentage of alumni who give annual gifts—the participation rate—is a widely used measure of alumni satisfaction with their alma mater, and it is one of many metrics used to determine national rankings and our ability to receive financial support from foundations and other funding sources.

While the percentage of alumni who make an annual gift to Babson has been rising for several years, we still have work to do in order to match other elite schools that often have participation rates exceeding 50 percent.

When you give—with a gift of any size—you join the many other proud Babson community members working to ensure that our rankings and reputation accurately reflect our vibrant global alumni network and the exceptional education Babson offers.

Thank You for Helping to Push Our Alumni Participation Higher Each Year
