Fulton Circle — $5,000 to $9,999

Named for Boston College’s first academic dean, Robert Fulton, SJ, the Fulton Circle honors BC donors who champion Jesuit Catholic education. Father Fulton launched BC’s first-ever public relations campaign to promote the value of Jesuit higher education. Fulton’s focus on a liberal arts foundation and student formation remain BC’s core tenets which set the University apart to this day.

Fulton Circle donors believe deeply in BC’s value and mission. With an annual gift of $5,000 to $9,999, donors join the Fulton Circle to continue their journey of philanthropic impact and engagement with BC.

I give, quite simply, to 'pay it forward.' My life's work as a nursing clinician, practitioner, and educator is only possible because of my Boston College education. I'm proud to call myself a BC nurse, and I'm proud to show my support for BC.
