BrownTogether Campaign

An aspirational strategic plan to elevate the University to the highest level of excellence in our history deserved an equally aspirational campaign. In BrownTogether, we got it.

BrownTogether campaign logoMore than ever, the world needs the full measure of Brown: its distinctive blend of courageous thinking, collaborative scholarship and commitment to the common good. 

BrownTogether, the comprehensive $3 billion fundraising campaign, is helping the University build on its distinction through critical investments in:

  • Our People. The diverse community of scholars—faculty, graduate students, and undergraduates—united in the pursuit of new knowledge and a commitment to improving lives.
  • Education and Research. Programs focused on examining big questions and finding solutions to global problems by working across academic boundaries.
  • Campus and Community. A place where our students and faculty can drive innovation and where openness and collaboration are supported and seen as critical to success.
  • The Brown Annual Fund. Immediate-use funds that allow for strategic deployment of resources—where and when they are most needed—and enhanced capacity to address emerging opportunities.


With your help, Brown will be perfectly positioned to transcend this century's challenges. Now—and in the years to come. Together, we are Brown.
