Societies

Northeastern’s donor recognition societies were created to honor the university’s most generous supporters. Whether you join one of the annual leadership giving societies, the Huntington Society, the Frank Palmer Speare Society, or all of them, you can take pride in knowing that you, in partnership with the Board of Trustees, President Joseph E. Aoun, and our academic deans, are advancing the university’s vital mission.

THE HUNTINGTON SOCIETY

Membership in the Huntington Society honors donors who have made generous commitments of $100,000 or more to Northeastern. Since the society was established over two decades ago, individual members have expanded opportunities for experiential education for students, developed our talented faculty, and transformed our campus.

Members of the Huntington Society serve five-year terms and are among the closest friends of the university. As leaders in Northeastern’s philanthropic community, their visionary investments are making an impact for generations to come.
