William Booth Society

The William Booth Society, our most prestigious donor organization, is named after the founder of The Salvation Army.  The Society represents the values of William Booth, who persevered against great odds to organize what has been called ‘one of the most effective social service agencies in the world’.

Supporters distinguish themselves as candidates for membership by making a monetary donation of $10,000 during a calendar year.  Those in The William Booth Society exemplify philanthropic leadership and outstanding commitment.

Make a Difference

It takes a special type of person to give of one’s self to make life better for others. William Booth, the founder of The Salvation Army, was this kind of person, dedicating his life to helping individuals in London who were considered outcasts of society – the homeless, the hungry, the poor and the destitute.

The Salvation Army has established The William Booth Society to recognize and honour individuals, foundations and corporations who make a monetary donation of $10,000 or more to The Salvation Army during a given year. Memberships may be renewed annually through the donor’s continued demonstration of support.
