Alumni | Founder's Fund

There are many ways to support Babson’s students, faculty, and future with your philanthropy.

His commitment to Babson and passion for entrepreneurship led Timothy DeMello ’81 to establish the Founders Fund, which provides alumni who are starting companies—and therefore may not have the liquidity to make a cash gift—with a giving vehicle that allows them to support Babson.

Founders Fund donors contribute a percentage of their future equity position in their business (usually 5 percent) to the College. At the time of the company’s sale, initial public offering, or other liquidity event, the contribution is transferred to Babson. Depending on the size of the contribution, it may be applied to a range of current-use or endowed funds at Babson.
