Brown Annual Fund

As one of the University's most powerful giving vehicles, the Brown Annual Fund provides the immediate-use support that fuels the Brown experience.

Making Brown accessible to the most talented students from all backgrounds. Keeping the University innovative and competitive. Ensuring our commitment to academic excellence and service to society. 

The Brown Annual Fund does all that, and much more. With its immediate-use funds, it empowers the University to nimbly respond to today's most pressing needs and emerging opportunities.

Where to Give

The Annual Fund is a "family of funds" that encompasses Brown's annual giving opportunities. Together, these funds touch nearly every nook and cranny of life at Brown.

From academics to campus-wide programs to financial aid, The Brown Fund supports the University where it's most needed.

Impact Funds

Each impact fund will strengthen a specific, high-priority initiative of the University. For Brown Annual Fund supporters, it offers targeted philanthropic opportunities to support presidential initiatives that align with their interests.

Driven by the alumni community, the Inman Page Black Alumni Council (IPC) Brown Annual Fund Scholarship is helping support Black students at Brown.
