Impact of Parent & Family Giving

Parent & Family Council members take great pride in knowing that they are enhancing the William & Mary experience for every single student. Your leadership-level financial support of the Parents Fund makes a number of programs possible that otherwise would not exist at William & Mary, and your active feedback to the university’s senior leadership helps us to better serve your students.

Your personal connection to other William & Mary parents creates an inclusive environment where all families feel a sense of belonging to the Tribe. PFC members enjoy networking with one another, a group of highly accomplished and inspiring individuals with a common goal to help students flourish.
