To our entire Brandeis
 community of alumni, friends, students, parents, faculty and staff who came together as #OneForBrandeis yesterday: Thank you! 1,597 of you contributed a total of $438,449 in support of Brandeis. You helped make #GivingTuesday an amazing success, and we’re incredibly grateful.


If you are interested in supporting Brandeis, please visit giving.brandeis.edu.



Giving Tuesday is the international day of philanthropy, on which donors around the world support the causes they care about.


On November 27, we encourage our entire Brandeis family—alumni, friends, students, parents, faculty and staff—to come together as One For Brandeis to help secure 1,250 gifts. If we reach our Giving Tuesday goal, Madalyn Friedberg, the president of the Brandeis National Committee and a generous friend of the University, has promised an additional $100,000 gift!


Gifts of any size are welcome; every gift matters, and every gift counts. You can give back to whichever part of your Brandeis experience was the most meaningful to you: a club, team, or organization, scholarships or student programs, your academic department or in honor of a professor. You can also make a gift to The Brandeis Fund, which supports financial aid, campus sustainability efforts, and other important University needs.


Don’t forget to share this ambitious campaign with your friends and family, and encourage them to be One For Brandeis on Giving Tuesday!  Please use our social media toolkit for useful Brandeis Giving Tuesday images for Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.

Thank you! We did it!

To Brandeis' Giving Tuesday supporters,


Thanks to you and your generosity, Brandeis University far exceeded its goal of 1,250 donors on Giving Tuesday and secured an additional $100,000 gift for student scholarships! In total, 1,597 of you gave $438,449 in support of Brandeis during this one-day fundraising campaign, and we couldn’t be more grateful.


With your gift and the many others that came in yesterday, Brandeis will be able to provide further important funding for scholarships, student clubs and organizations, varsity sports, faculty and academic support, maintenance of our buildings and grounds, our graduate schools, centers and institutes, and everything else that makes this University special. Brandeis relies on support from individuals like you to ensure that our students and faculty have the resources they need to succeed in and out of the classroom.


Your made this happen. Thank you for supporting Brandeis and helping us set a new University single-day fundraising record!


We also want to thank you for all of the incredible ways that you support Brandeis beyond the gift you made for Giving Tuesday. You mentor current students, attend alumni events across the globe, interview prospective students for admission, and so much more. We hope you will continue to engage with Brandeis, and thank you again for all that you do.


Even after Giving Tuesday, thank you for being #OneForBrandeis.
