Parents Annual Fund

Parents as Partners

Together, Washington University and parents share a commitment to student success. Our goal is to enable students to realize their dreams of a transormational college experience and prepare leaders today to benefit America and the world tomorrow.
The level of excellence at Washington University is enhanced by the generosity of parents who support our mission. Annual giving helps to provide a world-class living and learning experience for every student by having an immediate impact on university priorities, including:
Enhancing our need-based scholarship programs
Investing in our distinguished faculty
Sustaining undergraduate research
Establishing new programs and extraordinary learning opportunities
Supporting facilities and technology to foster teaching

Annual Fund gifts can directly support the school in which a parent's student is enrolled or other Annual Fund programs designated by the donor. Gifts of all sizes make a direct impact on the student experience and are greatly appreciated.
We encourage you to support Washington University through your philanthropy by making a gift online today.
