Brown University

Brown University needed a giving experience that lives up to its ethos.

About Brown University

On the heels of launching Brown/Together, Brown University needed a website as unified as the campaign.

In 2015, Sullivan branded and launched Brown/Together, a $3 billion capital campaign. But when alumni went online to engage with Brown, they faced a fractured experience spread across 13 advancement portals, each devoted to a different priority. Brown needed a single place for alumni, parents, and donors to be inspired by Brown’s vision and to support the Brown experience. Sullivan reimagined what giving to Brown would look like, building a new digital hub that enabled a custom user experience as unique as a Brown education.
