Founder’s Fest & Make Your Mark
Launched in 2016, Founder's Fest encourages our students to come together (while this year still maintaining a safe physical distance!), enjoy good food, and celebrate the guiding themes that were most meaningful to Roger Babson.
Join friends, classmates, and campus colleagues for cool swag, an opportunity to appreciate donors, and apple-themed treats in recognition of Roger’s fascination with Sir Isaac Newton and our Newton apple trees; which means you have to try the traditional cider apple donuts.
You can also join in on our annual day of giving, called Make your Mark, to help Defend the Dam!
This singular day of giving has become a worldwide celebration of the College community, and is also a symbolic day to thank those who give back to Babson. Honoring Roger W. Babson’s passion for philanthropy happens through gifts to any area of Babson, including campus programs, projects, athletics, institutes, scholarships, areas of critical need and more. Show your Pride and make a symbolic gift to what you love at Babson.
