The Gender and Sexuality Center (GSC) at Brandeis University believes that who you love or who you are should not be a barrier to education. So, we created a peer-to-peer mentorship program to give students the support they need to thrive and be successful in their educational pursuits.

GSC Pride Reps 
The GSC Pride Reps Program is a compensated year-long leadership development program designed to help undergraduate students develop the skills and knowledge necessary to be effective peer educators on matters of gender and sexuality. The GSC Pride Reps learn collaboratively to facilitate a sense of belonging and grow as leaders.

Your gift to the GSC on Giving DEISday will give young women and LGBTQ+ youth access to educational opportunities and leadership experiences. Your gift helps a young person participate in a compensated, year-long seminar on campus that centers gender and sexuality. Your gift opens the door wide for women and LGBTQ+ youth to be able to join a community that fosters self-discovery, friendship, and success at Brandeis and beyond.

Thank you so much for your investment in our mission and our students!

We did it!

We just reached 1,948 donors to Brandeis and unlocked an additional $200,000 for Brandeis! Thank you to everyone who gave so generously in support of our students.

The site will remain open through Homecoming Weekend as other challenges are on the cusp of unlocking more bonus funds!

  • GSAS needs 20 donors to unlock $1,800
  • The Alumni Board Challenge will unlock $135,000 when we receive 6 more donors to The Brandeis Fund or General Scholarships!
  • All gifts to General Scholarships will be matched dollar for dollar, up to $50,000!

Thank you to our donors and to our global community of Brandeisians.

Trustee Madalyn Friedberg just committed an additional $100,000 to reach 1,948 donors to Brandeis! Now when we do, it will unlock $200,000!

Some areas of campus still have challenges at play:

Give to GSAS to unlock $1,800!
Waltham Group needs 9 donors to earn $2,000!
Heller needs 6 donors to reach a $5,000 bonus!
When 9 donors give to any diversity scholarship it will unlock $25,000!
And when 70 alumni give to The Brandeis Fund or General Scholarships (which are being matched, dollar for dollar!), it will unlock $135,000 thanks to the Alumni Association Board of Directors.

Thank you so much for your support!
