Membership in the Society of Fellows shows an exemplary commitment to fulfilling the legal needs of the Greater Boston community. Each Society of Fellows contribution we receive helps build the permanent endowment in turn freeing up other sources of BBF funding, which allows the BBF to continue to be a first responder when addressing the Greater Boston community’s evolving needs.
Contributions are payable over a maximum of 10 years, with an anticipated annual payment of at least 10% of the pledge. Junior Fellow contributions are payable over four years, or $250 a year. Since the inception of the Program, Fellows contributions to the Society of Fellows Program have raised the endowment to approximately $3.4 million.Your donation will support our long-term goal of $5 million for the endowment, which when reached will provide significant support for BBF administrative and operations costs.
When a pledge has been fully paid, it can be applied towards membership at a higher giving level. Members who have paid $10,000 of their contribution become Life Fellows of the BBF. All contributions are tax-deductible to the extent provided by law.

"I decided to pledge as a Junior Fellow to do my small part in advancing the BBF’s justice-promoting mission of, among other things, providing access to justice for society’s underserved.
