Invest in the Future

Each year thousands of generous alumni, families, faculty, staff and students support Brandeis and future generations of Brandeisians with an annual gift. Now, more than ever, your support will ensure that our students have access to a Brandeis education with world-class faculty, engage in groundbreaking research, and live and learn in adaptable environments.

Join the Brandeis donor community by directing your support to any of the areas where it can have the greatest impact.

The Brandeis Fund

The most effective way to support Brandeis and our students, especially in times of crisis. The Brandeis Fund provides critical, unrestricted support to the university so we can deploy it where it is needed most.

The Parents Fund

When Brandeis parents invest in the university above and beyond tuition, it sends 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 and this unrestricted support will be put to immediate use.

Emergency Scholarships

As the financial impact of the pandemic has yet to be realized across the globe, scholarship dollars are needed now more than ever before. Emergency scholarship funds will help see students and their families through this truly unprecedented time by ensuring continued access to a Brandeis education. As a current-use fund, the 2020 Student Emergency Scholarship Fund will immediately benefit Brandeis students impacted by a state or national emergency.

Student Emergency Grant Fund

In response to the pandemic, the university is raising support for the Student Emergency Fund, which will aid Brandeis’ commitment to mitigating the financial impact these sudden circumstances may have on students. The fund exists for precisely this situation: to provide urgent and emergency funds to students in need.
