The Jeremiah Milbank Society is the national recognition society for individuals who give an unrestricted gift of $10,000 or more to a local Club through an annual campaign such as It Just Takes One. 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.
