Behind every Wellesley student is a Wellesley parent,
and we think you're both extraordinary!
Wellesley parents make quite an impact, and not just because they share their extraordinary daughters. Every year, parents join Wellesley alumnae and friends to meet the funding gap between the College income (from tuition and the endowment) and annual college expenses.
This year nearly 600 parents and families went above and beyond by generously contributing almost $1,000,000 to the College. That is pretty extraordinary! Of that support, $350,000 was designated as unrestricted gifts to the Parents Fund
, a vital annual giving fund to provide resources where the college needs it most. Gifts of all sizes went directly to support academic excellence at the College and improve student services and facilities.
Here are a few examples of what gifts to the Parents Fund can do:
- Help the College enroll and retain the most promising students by offering resources to meet students’ full financial needs.
- Maintain the highest quality of a Wellesley education by supporting the recruitment and retention of exceptional faculty who serve as lifetime mentors to their students.
- Fund scholarships, fellowships, student research programs, and support career services.
- Provide nearly limitless opportunities so that Wellesley women go on to contribute and lead in virtually every field around the globe.
Wellesley offers transformative education and leadership opportunities that allow graduates to go forth and make a difference in the world. We couldn’t do it without you and we are grateful for your support. Wellesley wouldn’t be Wellesley without you!
