1635 SocietyThe 1635 Society honors and thanks those alumni, families, faculty/staff and friends who have had the foresight to provide for the future support of BLS through the BLSA. By naming the BLSA in their wills, pension plans, insurance policies and life-income gifts, society members insure that the Latin School community will remain strong in its mission.
The Contompasis Cup, established in 2012 in honor of long-time Head Master Michael Contompasis ’57 celebrates class identity and participation. The Cup is awarded annually to classes with the highest percentage of donors in a non-reunion year.
The Fidelis Society celebrates and recognizes our most loyal donors – those alumni, parents and friends who have made a gift for 10+ consecutive years. In addition, young alumni who have made a gift every year since graduation are recognized as members of the Fidelis Society. Parents of current students are members of the Fidelis Society if they make a gift every year since their first BLS student entered Latin School.
The Founders' Gallery recognizes those donors who have made Boston Latin School a priority in their philanthropy and have made gifts – most often over the course of many years – totaling $1 million or more. The Founders' Gallery is located outside the main office at Latin School, and includes a photo and description of each supporter and the programs they make possible for the school.
Each fall, the BLSA produces a report of giving, Gratiae, recognizing those who made an investment in the school and the Association the prior year, as well as providing an update on the Association’s financials and the impact of donor investment.
The Headmaster’s Society recognizes donors who invest at the $1,635 level and higher with unique opportunities to gain an even closer connection to Latin School. Graduates of the past 15 years have a special opportunity to participate in the Headmaster’s Society with gifts ranging from $16.35 for our youngest alumni to $635.00 for those who have been out of school for at least 10 years.
Prima Perpetua Donor Wall
Lead donors to the Prima Perpetua Campaign are featured on a permanent donor wall located near the school's original front entrance. Leadership gifts at various tiers, beginning at the $50,000 level through $5 million, are listed and updated on a semi-annual basis. These generous gifts made by alumni and friends of BLS are inspiring and provide momentum to realize the full potential for Latin School's future.
The BLSA respects the right to privacy for all of its donors. To this end, BLSA will not, under any circumstances, sell, share or trade the personal and/or business information of our donors with any external organizations or agencies.
