Brandman Gives Back

This campaign ends on January 1 at 02:59AM EST

Join us and be a part of Brandman history with our inaugural Brandman Gives Back, a day for giving back and paying it forward.

At Brandman, we are all about our students and their success. And we know that our hard-working students face many barriers to reaching their dreams. We are proud that at Brandman, we remove common barriers and offer our students dedicated support. And that’s why we are asking for your support to help remove financial barriers for students in need. Together, as a community, we can make a difference. 

For our first Brandman Gives Back on #GivingTuesday, December 3rd, our goal is to have 400 donors come together to support four funding priorities:

Military Lending Libraries

Thanks to one of our generous donors, gifts to this fund will be matched dollar for dollar, up to $10,000! Our Military Lending Libraries provide free textbooks and educational materials to active military students since they do not get book stipends for college. Your support will help remove this barrier for men and women serving our country. 

Thanks to our generous Brandman Alumni Advisory Board, gifts to this fund will be matched dollar for dollar, up to $2,100! Pay it forward. Brandman Gives Back is an unique opportunity for our alumini to come together as a community to help support our scholarship founded by Brandman Alumni for current students in need.

Help remove barriers that keep first generation college students from pursuing their dreams by giving a gift of hope. Your support transforms the future for our first generation students, who then continue their studies to pursue masters and doctorate degrees.

Our veterans have served our country. Now it's our turn to support our veteran students. This #GivingTuesday, you can feel proud when you give to Brandman veteran scholarships. Your donation will help our veteran students thrive in their academic pursuits.
