President’s Society

Our ambitious goals could never be reached, nor our educational mission fulfilled, without the leadership gifts from our most committed and generous donors: members of our President’s Society.

President’s Society donors are leaders who support our new and emerging leaders. Since 1989, our donors have had a direct impact on Babson’s excellence in entrepreneurial education, one that has been recognized by U.S.News & World Report, which has ranked Babson No. 1 for entrepreneurship for an unprecedented 20 consecutive years.

As a member of the President’s Society, you may make a gift that has a direct, immediate, and substantial effect on our students, our programs, and our impact on the world. You may direct your gift to either the unrestricted fund that support the College’s three key priorities of scholarship, faculty excellence, and student life. You may direct your gift to an area of the college that is most interesting to you, such as to support a specific center such as the Center for Women’s Entrepreneurial Leadership, an initiative such as the Coaching for Leadership and Teamwork Program, or broader areas such as athletics or graduate or undergraduate programs.

Thomas Riley

“I use my Babson education every day, to solve problems, make decisions, and build consensus. I make annual President's Society gifts in support of scholarships because I want to extend a Babson education to other deserving students and invest in these future leaders. The President's Society is full of individuals who are passionate about Babson. Whenever I meet them, I enjoy learning how Babson set their career in motion, and what they hope to accomplish by giving back.”
