The Boulé Foundation recognizes its major donors deserve a special kind of custom donor medallion. The former Medallic Art Company, whose customers now are serviced by Medalcraft Mint, has produced Legacy Award medallions to honor the total amount of contributions from the Boulé Foundation’s largest donors.
The Boulé Foundation is a private organization founded by the Sigma Pi Phi Fraternity in 1980 to support largely African American charitable, religious, scientific, literary or educational purposes through contributions of the fraternity members. Sigma Pi Phi is the oldest African American Greek organization.
The Legacy Award medallions feature likenesses of major donors, with the fraternity’s crest and other imagery featured on the back side. Here is a list of donors and their medallions:
