In 1991, University Associate (including Boston University Medical Center & R.F. Walsh) donated $200,000 for the restoration, maintenance and enrichment of the squares.  These funds have been utilized for various improvement projects, such as painting the two center fountains, erecting the flag pole, completing foundry work and organizing several concerts.
