PROVIDENCE, R.I. [Brown University] — More than a year ahead of its planned December 2022 end date, BrownTogether, the most ambitious fundraising campaign in Brown University history, has eclipsed its original $3 billion goal.
Given continued momentum in support of BrownTogether’s vision for strengthening Brown, and its positive impact on everything from student scholarships to community engagement initiatives to research on pressing issues, the University will extend the campaign timeline. In the coming months, Brown’s senior leaders and members of the Corporation of Brown University will update the campaign’s priorities and establish a revised fundraising target and new end date.
President Christina H. Paxson said the remarkable generosity of Brown alumni, parents and friends is deepening the educational experience for talented students and enabling scholars on campus to make an ever-increasing impact on societal challenges with implications well beyond campus.
“The momentum and community commitment behind BrownTogether has been simply extraordinary, and we will build on that energy and philanthropic engagement in ways that enable Brown to make a meaningful impact both at home in Rhode Island and across the globe,” Paxson said. “We will continue to focus fundraising for initiatives central to our mission — making a Brown education accessible to the best and brightest students, attracting leading scholars to teach and conduct research in a spirit of free inquiry, and advancing discovery in areas where we can make breakthroughs that improve lives.”
