The Parents Leadership Council is comprised of approximately 60 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's parent community has a long tradition of commitment to the university. Inspired by Brown's mission of academic excellence, intellectual freedom and student diversity, parents play a significant role in sustaining and strengthening that mission. We are proud to be part of this philanthropic community and hope you will join us in donating to The Parents Fund.
