The Justice Brandeis Society is a community of philanthropically minded alumni, parents and friends whose generous support strengthens the university in significant ways. Members support Brandeis in its efforts to attract visionary faculty and students who are drawn to the founding principles that remain at its core today: a commitment to learning and critical thinking and a dedication to advancing justice and creating a better world.


We are proud to recognize donors from across the university who give an annual gift of $1,000 or more to Brandeis each fiscal year (July 1–June 30) with membership into the Justice Brandeis Society. JBS membership is renewable annually.

Become a member today and join a vibrant and growing society that is committed to the continued excellence of Brandeis.
