Parents Fund

In order to maintain its position as an elite university, Brandeis looks to parents for support. We realize that tuition and fees are a big investment; however, the actual cost of a Brandeis education is substantially higher than the tuition charged.

When parents invest in Brandeis above and beyond tuition, it sends a strong message to the outside world about the quality of the institution. By making Brandeis a philanthropic priority, you are also investing in your child’s experience on campus and supporting the education of other deserving students.

Please consider making a tax-deductible contribution to the Parents Fund. If you’d like to discuss giving opportunities, please contact Gayle Gordon ’08, director of parent giving (781-736-4060 or

Gifts can be designated to specific academic departments, programs, clubs and sports teams. You may also choose to make a gift in honor of your child’s favorite professor or mentor, and we will notify him/her on your behalf.

Gifts may be made online, by telephone (781-736-4019) or by sending a check (made payable to Brandeis University) to:
