The Parents Fund is an annual fund to raise money for the University's current operating budget. When parents and families make gifts to The Parents Fund, the money is used this fiscal year for the University's most pressing priorities: providing small classes, outstanding professors and access to the best academic resources. The Parents Fund also supports activities beyond the classroom including career development opportunities.
