The Brigham Luminary Society

Carrying the qualities of light, luminaries are symbols of learning, progress, and inspiration. The Brigham Luminary Society celebrates the generous benefactors who have contributed $1 million or more during their lifetime to advance the Brigham’s mission to transform medicine. We are deeply grateful to these special friends who empower Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Brigham and Women’s Faulkner Hospital to be bold, challenge us to strive for breakthroughs, and enable the very best in patient care, research, and education. Thanks to their visionary philanthropy and partnership, the Brigham is reshaping medicine and transforming lives for patients around the globe.
