About University Advancement

Service to humanity medallion

University Advancement works to inform, involve, and inspire Princeton’s global community of alumni, parents and friends in ways that enable the University to fulfill its mission of advancing learning through scholarship, research and teaching to serve the nation and the world.

The Advancement team supports the work of the Alumni Council and class, regional and affiliated groups, organizing programs such as Reunions, Alumni Day, and affinity conferences. They also support Princeton Journeys, which combine intellectual enrichment with world travel. 

Advancement is responsible for engaging alumni, parents and friends of the University to raise critically important philanthropic support for the University’s highest priorities, including Annual Giving and gifts designated for a specific purpose or through estate planning. In addition, the office is responsible for ensuring that donors are both appropriately recognized and informed about the impact their gifts make on Princeton’s mission of teaching and research.
