The Brandeis Fund

Help light the way for 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, from keeping our campus COVID-ready to providing critical financial aid for students in need.

"I could not have attended Brandeis, let alone have taken advantage of all it had to offer, had it not been for student scholarships. I cannot afford to give much, but I know a little goes a long way." - Ari Salinger ’12

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.

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, including the current effort to endow a faculty position in the Department of African and African American Studies. Your generosity drives innovation through support for our students, faculty and campus community.

President Ron Liebowitz and his wife Jessica with Elias Rosenfeld ’20.
“As a Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipient, my ability to advocate on behalf of ‘Dreamers’ like myself to remain in the U.S. has been directly enabled by my experience at Brandeis where I was able to pursue my leadership.” - Elias Rosenfeld ’20

“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."
