The Parents Fund

The Parents Fund is a vital component of Connecticut College’s
Annual Fund. It provides immediate unrestricted dollars that support
virtually every aspect of a Connecticut College education, including financial aid, study abroad, athletic equipment, visiting scholars and more.

Supporting the College through the Parents Fund is an important way for parents to endorse the extraordinary education and opportunities that the College provides their sons and daughters.

Gifts of all amounts make a difference.  In 2013, nearly 80 percent of gifts to the Parents Fund were $500 or less and helped the Fund top $600,000.

Families who give $1,911 or more qualify for the 1911 Society. Last year, leadership gifts accounted for more than 75 percent of dollars raised by the Parents Fund.
