A Record-High Year for Philanthropic Support – Thank You!

We did it

In fiscal year 2015, Babson College received more than 7,600 contributions from alumni and friends, students and parents, corporations, and organizations.

Despite national trends to the contrary, our alumni participation has risen in three consecutive years. This is a marked change from a ten-year downward trend in alumni participation rates. This year, we reached a new milestone for alumni participation – a return to our highest participation rate in over ten years!

Reaching 20% represents a 25% overall increase in alumni participation just over last year. And participation truly matters! Last year, gifts of $100 or less fueled the equivalent of 15 financial aid packages for students who might not otherwise have benefited from a Babson education.

Thank you to all of our wonderful supporters for showing their support to Babson this year.
