    The Parents Fund

    The Parents Fund supports Brandeis University's top priority: our students. Last year, parents contributed over $1 million — signaling a strong, collective vote of confidence in the university's mission and vision. Family gifts have an immediate impact on the student experience, from career services and internships to faculty support and student scholarships.
