Collaborations among Princeton students and faculty take place in the classroom and laboratory, on the stage and playing field, and by engaging in service activities on campus and beyond. Annual Giving helps to make these transformative experiences possible.
Together we make it possible.
Annual Giving is an investment that provides Princeton students with the tools and opportunity to thrive.
Together We Discover
Professor Olga Troyanskaya and her team of biologists and computer scientists are decoding changes in the genome so they can better understand diseases like Alzheimer’s and cancer.

Together We Lead
Student. Tiger. Veteran. The collegiate bond is especially tight for a band of brothers who enrolled at Princeton after serving in the U.S. armed forces. Following four years as a helicopter mechanic in the Marines, Tyler Eddy ’21 (third from right) co-founded the Princeton Student Veterans Alliance, a community outreach organization that also provides academic guidance to servicemen and servicewomen. Annual Giving enriches the Princeton community, helping military veterans thrive.

Together We Imagine
The senior thesis is a defining aspect of the Princeton experience, developing generations of independent thinkers. Like Raina Seyd, Anna Zabel, and Megan Berry, a trio of seniors who collaborated on a production of Sophie Treadwell’s expressionist drama “Machinal” as their senior theses, which was directed by Professor Bob Sandberg ’70. Annual Giving helps recruit enthusiastic teachers and supports the academic excellence that makes Princeton special.
Together We Empower
