The Parents Fund

The Parents Fund is an important component of the Annual Fund. Current and former non-alumni parents contribute nearly 18 percent of the Annual Fund total each year through their gifts to the Parents Fund. Since 2010, parent giving at W&L has almost doubled. Current and former non-alumni parents contributed a record-breaking $1.81 million to the school last year and our goal this year is $1.85 million.

Supporters of the Parents Fund help provide an undergraduate experience that continues to set the standard for liberal arts education. When parents and families make gifts to the Parents Fund, the money is used this fiscal year for the University's more pressing priorities: providing small classes, outstanding professors and access to the best academic resources including career development, international experiences, service learning opportunities and much more.

Parent giving makes an immediate impact on all W&L students!
