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.

Supporting the University where it's most needed, from academics to campus-wide programs to financial aid.

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.

Affinity Scholarships

Through our affinity scholarships, we’re helping to bring students from all backgrounds and cultures to Brown through financial aid.

Professional School Funds

These school-specific funds directly support the individual priorities of each professional school. The Brown Medical Annual Fund, the School of Public Health Annual Fund, and the School of Engineering Annual Fund are the bedrock of our professional schools' immediate-use initiatives.
