Parent Programs

The Parents Fund

The Parents Fund is a component of The Fairfield Fund and has an annual goal to raise $500,000. Donations to this important fund are used to strengthen student life, career services and other programs designed to help our students succeed. Your gift has an immediate impact on the campus environment by enhancing the academic and social experiences for every student at Fairfield. Your gifts also maintain academic excellence through faculty support and small student to teacher ratios.

Parents Leadership Council

The Parents Leadership Council is a network of parents committed to supporting and enhancing the quality of Fairfield University student life and learning, and supports the University by raising funds from the parent community. Council members work closely with the University to actively engage parents and serve as the voice of the parents’ community with the University administration.

An annual donation of $5,000 or more establishes your membership in the Parents Leadership Council. Benefits of giving at this leadership level include special invitations to events hosted by University leadership, special updates from the Parents' Program Office, invitations to focus groups for parents and direct access to a University Advancement staff member.
