Parent Giving

The Parents Fund

Every gift matters, and your contribution to The Parents Fund, no matter the size, is a tangible way to support your student’s FGS experience. As part of The 1850 Fund, annual gifts to The Parents Fund — from current parents, grandparents and parents of alumni — have an immediate impact on every student and faculty member: funding extracurricular activities, campus renewal projects, faculty development, department budgets, and much more.

Parent Leadership Giving

If your family is in a position to give at the leadership level, please consider an annual contribution to The Parents Fund of $1,850 or more. Current parents who give at this leadership level are recognized alongside alumni as members of The Founders Society.
