Rising Philanthropists

Be Part of a New Community
The BSA Foundation is proud to announce the Rising Philanthropists group. Geared specifically towards professionals interested in philanthropic engagement within the design and community realm, Rising Philanthropists will have the unique ability to have their voices heard and be directly involved in the future of the city of Boston.

Rising Philanthropist programs include invitations to exclusive events for the BSA Foundation’s Legacy Circle members, special Rising Philanthropist cocktail events, and informational gatherings to learn more about the impact their support is having in the community.

The Rising Philanthropist membership starts at $250 and is renewable on an annual basis. To learn more about Rising Philanthropists, or to join, please contact Michela Davola: or 617-391-4002.

Legacy Circle members support the Foundation by making a long-term financial commitment (5 or more years) to support its mission. Foundation programs and other initiatives address complex urban issues and bring broad awareness of the power of design to individuals, communities, and policy makers. 

Sustainable funding is crucial because achieving real and lasting impact for families, neighborhoods, and cities, and regions takes time. Challenges such as climate change, urban mobility, and affordable housing are not quickly solved. We are grateful to the generosity and far-sightedness demonstrated by our Legacy Circle members. 

To learn more about becoming a Legacy Circle member, contact Victoria McKay at Or give today.

Imre Halasz Trust makes significant gift to the BSA Foundation

The BSA Foundation (Foundation) is pleased to announce that it has received a significant donation from the Imre Halasz Trust, which was established by the late Imre Halasz to support architects, the study of architecture, urban design, and the interaction and intersection of them with the public. The mission of the Imre Halasz Trust is well-aligned with the Foundation’s commitment to engaging the public in appreciating design excellence and helping solve our communities’ challenges through design.
