It would have been helpful if you would have posted the code you were
using.

I suspect that you were attempting to use a front end token as if it were
a function.  Here is probably what you need to do.

ButtonBox[
  "Click me to load package",
  ButtonFunction :>
    FrontEndExecute[FrontEndToken["EvaluateInitialization"]],
  ButtonEvaluator -> None,
  Active -> True
]
