Make a Gift for Heller's 65th Anniversary

65 Years Advancing Social Justice and Here's to 65 More Years

With Brandeis celebrating its 75th Anniversary, we saw the opportunity to start celebrating Heller's 65th Anniversary a little early. The Heller School's legacy began in 1959 and the year 2024 will be its 65th year.

We ask that you help us reach a $6.5 million goal this year and help us make an even bigger impact on our school, faculty and students. We can't achieve this goal without the help of our community who so value our mission of knowledge advancing social justice. We ask you to help us continue to support the 450+ Heller students that remain at Heller and those to come in the future.
