About Brown’s Alumni & Friends

We're more than a university. We're a community. 

Brown Alumni & Friends is the hub for the Brown alumni, parents, families, students, and friends who help set our University apart through their engagement and philanthropic support.

This site is where we can come together to find inspiring stories, share information and resources, keep our community in the know, celebrate the impact of giving, and stay connected to one another.

About the Division of Advancement

Brown University's Division of Advancement is committed to building relationships that engage Brown’s worldwide community with the University and inspire them to give back to Brown through philanthropy and volunteerism.

The Division fosters and supports mutually beneficial, lifelong ties that keep alumni connected to their alma mater and each other. Through fundraising and development, the Division cultivates philanthropic investments that align donor interests and passions with strategic University priorities. 

This work is achieved through a variety of units, programs, and services including reunions and events; the Brown Annual Fund; Brown Clubs, classes and affinity groups; donor relations and stewardship; communications and marketing; parent and family giving; and much more.

Brown has an amazing community of alumni, parents and friends who care deeply about Brown and its future. They give their time and talents in meaningful ways that help our students to succeed and the University to thrive, and their generous spirit makes it possible to secure critical resources that significantly advance Brown’s mission of teaching, research, and service to the world.
