The William Booth Society is The Salvation Army’s most prestigious donor recognition program. It is named for the founder of The Salvation Army who began helping individuals in London who were considered outcasts of society –the homeless, the poor and the destitute. William Booth Society members are invariably among the leaders who cause positive change in their communities. All are committed to go beyond mere concern and to take action by making an annual gift of $5,000 or more.
