The Phi Alpha Tau fraternity at Emerson College began raising money for sophomore Donnie Collins, 20, early this month after his insurance company refused to cover his breast removal surgery.
Their initial goal was $4,800, but donations have exceeded $17,000, more than double the operation's $8,000 price.
In a note posted this week with a thank-you video on YouTube, Mr Collins, 20, said his operation would take place this week.
Fraternity treasurer Christian Bergren-Aragon said he believed a major reason the campaign caught on was because it defied the stereotype of fraternities.
