The Parents Leadership Council is comprised of approximately 50 Brown families committed to preserving and enhancing the quality of the Brown experience and advancing the University's stature. Members seek to inspire support from other Brown parents by making example-setting gifts, engaging in personal outreach, hosting and attending regional events, and welcoming new families into the community.

Brown parents have a strong tradition of philanthropy to the University, both while their children are at Brown and after they have graduated. Brown parents' generosity has repeatedly positioned The Parents Fund as one of the most successful parent funds in the Ivy League. These gifts go to work immediately, sustaining Brown's academic excellence and ensuring that every student has access to all that Brown has to offer.

    Members of the Parents Leadership Council:

    • Demonstrate philanthropic support with a minimum annual gift of $25,000 to Brown. Because of the committee's focus on raising unrestricted support for Brown, members are asked to designate a minimum of $10,000 of their gift to The Parents Fund
    • Attend two council meetings per year: one on campus during Family Weekend, and one in New York City in the late winter
    • Connect with select Brown families annually to invite their support of The Parents Fund or otherwise foster their engagement with Brown
    • Welcome incoming families to Brown
    • Host regional events for fellow parents (optionally)
    • Build their own relationship with an institution with which their children will have a lifelong affiliation

    Brown wouldn’t be the institution it is today without its history of generous parent supporters. With this forward-thinking philanthropy from parents, we can sustain and grow the University's excellence in both education and accessibility. We’re inspired to make certain that Brown continues to be the place our son knows and loves.
