Brown University set multiple fundraising records during its 2016 fiscal year.
The launch of the
BrownTogether campaign, its annual fund receiving record contributions, and a substantial
increase in major gifts helped the university achieve its record levels.
“We owe our deepest gratitude to our alumni, parents,
faculty and staff whose loyalty and generosity are making a tangible difference
in the future of Brown,” Senior Vice President Patricia
Watson said. “Sustaining this level of fundraising success will serve the university well in the years ahead and support our strategic growth in areas of
both strength and potential.”
The total raised by Brown in its 2016 fiscal
year was $300.7 million, which is $8 million more than the then-record $292
million raised in 2015. The amount received in 2015 in cash totaled $217
million, beating the previous record of $215 million in 2005.
Through the BrownTogether campaign, the money will
support investments in people, groundbreaking education and research and campus
initiatives focusing on infrastructure and student life. It will go toward
helping Brown achieve its goals of Building on Distinction, a plan designed to direct
growth and development through the next decade.
