Giving to Brown

Giving Priorities

Ever Bold Ever Brown — Sustaining our Commitment to Excellence

Public Health

The School of Public Health will create new opportunities for national and international collaborations and open pathways of research to improve human health.

Sustainable Investment Fund

As of June 2016, you can now support Brown University in a way that’s focused specifically on sustainability with no minimum gift requirement.


The School provides students with a deep understanding of technology and how it affects society. This initiative will further position Brown to conduct path-breaking research, capitalize on opportunities for interdisciplinary study, and expand entrepreneurship programs.

Residential Life

Brown offers a distinctive educational experience, and the University is striving to provide an equally distinctive residential one. Dedicated communities will support the academic goals, leadership capabilities, and social needs of our students.

Environmental Research and Teaching

Human activity and natural processes are creating widespread, urgent environmental challenges. Our environmental scientists, housed together in a “green” building, will collaborate to seek lasting solutions to pressing issues.


A flourishing humanities program provides a foundation for understanding the human experience and instills critical thinking skills. Brown will enhance its already stellar program by adding new faculty and pioneering collaborative projects.

Financial Aid

Support for Brown’s financial aid program is an investment in talent and our commitment to provide an affordable education for students from all circumstances. These talented students help create a diverse community of scholars, broadening everyone’s education.

Brain Science

Researchers at the Brown Institute for Brain Science are working to unlock the brain's secrets and translate that understanding into technologies and treatments that improve people's lives.


Athletic programs serve as vital points of pride and connection for the University and the community. This initiative will propel athletics to a new level of excellence by investing in facility upgrades, staffing increases, and financial aid packages for deserving student-athletes.
