Monan Circle — $25,000 +
The highest circle of the 1863 Society, the Monan Circle honors the most transformative of BC donors. Named after the 24th president of Boston College, Donald Monan, SJ, the Monan Circle offers maximum impact, engagement, and access to its members. Father Monan inherited the presidency in 1972 amid financial, social, and political turmoil. Through an unprecedented 24-year tenure, Monan artfully ushered Boston College to financial solvency, inclusion, and academic excellence. His transformational leadership catapulted our great university into a new era of prominence and impact on the national and international stage.
Monan Circle donors are the new transformers and support BC with an annual gift of $25,000 or more for maximum philanthropic impact and engagement with BC.

How Your Donation Makes a Difference
Boston College Fund
Monan gifts can create a need-based scholarship in your name awarded to a BC undergraduate student for one year.
*This unrestricted fund provides flexibility for fund designation to those areas in most need.
William J. Flynn Fund
Monan gifts can establish a Flynn Fund Scholarship in your name—and have an immediate impact on a scholar-athlete as they pursue their goals at the Heights.
Wall Street Council Scholarship Fund
Monan gifts to the Wall Street Council Scholarship Fund generate individual scholarships for Boston College Gabelli Presidential Scholars. Created to support the brightest minds and most promising scholars, these are the only merit-based, full-tuition scholarships offered by BC.
“We believe in the Jesuit value of living an enlightened life. We also understand that the BC experience can be financially out of reach for many deserving students, which is why we choose to support BC. We want to help others pursue their own personal journey of education and service.”
