The community’s participation this year is very important to us, as we have been given two challenge grants.

New Donor Challenge
Donor Ron Ansin has agreed to match all new gifts we receive, before June 30th of this year—up to $20,000. If you’ve never donated to BAGLY before, your purchase of a ticket to Coming Home will go a long way to helping us meet that challenge.

Current Donor Challenge
The Babson Foundation has agreed to match all gifts—up to $10,000—from current donors who increase their giving before June 30th of this year and also commit to giving that amount again in our next fiscal year.

So, if you are planning on joining us at Coming Home, please bring a friend or two!

It’s never too early to reserve your tickets, at $75/ticket, either by online donation at or by calling Paige Kruza, Development Coordinator, at 617.227.4313. Of course if you can’t make it on May 3rd, but wish to support BAGLY through these challenge grants, you can make a tax-deductible donation at anytime. You can also let us know if you want any tickets to go to current youth or recent alumni/ae who will otherwise be unable to afford to attend.
