Brandeis Alumni, Family and Friends

Giving Opportunities

While Brandeis is grateful for every gift, support of the following priorities is especially needed.

Thousands of generous alumni, families and friends support Brandeis, and future generations of Brandeisians, with an annual gift. Their support, and yours, ensures our students have access to a Brandeis education, with the opportunity to learn from a world-class faculty, engage in groundbreaking research and live and grow in a supportive and scholarly environment.

The Brandeis Fund

Help Brandeis students with a gift to The Brandeis Fund.

We remain steadfast in our mission to provide every enrolled student with a world-class Brandeis education and enriching experience. Just as the support of the entire Brandeis community illuminated our path forward at the start of the pandemic, we know it will continue to do so today as we resume living and learning on campus.

Unrestricted support through The Brandeis Fund helps us meet the ever-changing needs of the Brandeis community and provides critical financial aid for students in need.

Give to the Brandeis Fund

The Parents Fund

When Brandeis parents invest in the university above and beyond tuition, you send a strong message about the superb education that students receive. By making Brandeis a philanthropic priority, you are investing in your own student’s experience on campus and supporting the education of other deserving students. Consider making a gift in honor of your student or one of their favorite professors to provide unrestricted support that will be put to immediate use.

Give to the Parents Fund

Antisemitism and Jewish Identity

The Antisemitism and Jewish Identity Fund supports Brandeis programs and activities that reflect Jewish values and the Jewish global experience, as well as those that combat antisemitism.                                                       


Invest in Diversity

Brandeis is committed to providing critical scholarship dollars that increase the diversity within our classrooms. Supporting need-based financial aid ensures that all students, regardless of background, can attend Brandeis and take advantage of all we have to offer.

Support Diversity Scholarships

Professorships, Capital Projects and Endowments

Brandeis' commitment to academic rigor, critical thinking and creating a just world is as strong today as at our founding. Philanthropy helped build this university and remains an important pillar as we recommit to excellence and access in the 21st century.

Gifting to establish endowed professorships, named capital projects or departmental endowments can transform the future of higher education at Brandeis. Your generosity drives innovation through support for our students, faculty and campus community.

“As a Latina and the first in my family to attend college, I will help students in marginalized and under-resourced communities to receive the same academic access that I’ve been granted.” - Hulda Flores ’21

“As an underprivileged child from an immigrant family, I was offered a full scholarship to Brandeis. What I gradually came to see was that one’s gratitude for such a gift was not to be expressed in words, but in finding ways to help realize the promise of others."
