Giving | Giving Societies

Babson's giving societies are meant to honor our most loyal donors and bring together like-minded members of the Babson community. Throughout the year, members of each giving society receive exclusive communications from Babson leadership, special invitations to in-person events, tailored networking opportunities, and recognition around campus.

Babson Defenders

Our monthly and annual donors ensure that the College has a consistent and reliable income stream that allows us to adapt to the ever-changing needs of our community. It means that every student can continue to learn, safely and uninterrupted, and that Babson will not only survive, but thrive.
