Our parent and family giving program is one of the strongest in the country, and at its core are parents and grandparents who make up the Brown Family Fellows.

Their generosity sustains and strengthens Brown’s distinctive brand of academic exploration and enhances educational opportunity for their children and their classmates. We invite you to join this community of dedicated benefactors with an annual gift to Brown beginning at $15,000.

Family Fellows are recognized for their total yearly giving, which may include a range of philanthropic interests. Most Family Fellows choose to include leadership-level support of The Parents Fund in their giving each year. Gifts to The Parents Fund go to work immediately, sustaining Brown’s academic excellence and ensuring that every student has access to all that Brown has to offer.

In recognition of their generosity, Family Fellows enjoy the following:

  • Family Fellows regional events with university speakers and leaders
  • Open Gates, an annual on-campus immersion day for the Family Fellows community including a reception with University leadership and faculty each spring
  • Invitation-only reception with University leadership during Family Weekend 
  • Opportunities to participate in exclusive virtual webinar sessions with Brown's star faculty and top administrators
  • Specialized communication and resources from the staff in the Office of Parent and Family Giving
