Jeremiah Milbank (1887-1972) was a man of remarkable accomplishments as a businessman, financier, and philanthropist. A lifelong believer in voluntarism, Jeremiah Milbank helped President Herbert Hoover develop the Boys & Girls Club national organization that provides support services for Clubs serving disadvantaged youth. He served as treasurer of the national organization for more than 25 years. Throughout his lifetime, Mr. Milbank gave a fortune to help those in need yet he never sought monuments or memorials. He believed that wealth not used to help others was wealth wasted.
The Jeremiah Milbank Society Member Benefits include prominent recognition at the Boys & Girls Club of Georgetown's Annual Banquet as well as an invitation to join other top Boys & Girls Club donors at a prestigious event during the annual National Conference hosted by one of the national organizations distinguished leaders, alumni, or benefactors.
We appreciate your most generous support.
