Why is the Parents’ Fund so important?
Parents’ Fund is an annual, unrestricted sub-campaign for parents. The Parents’ Fund campaign is solely managed and operated by the Office of Annual Giving. The primary purpose of the Parents’ Fund campaign is to solicit current and former parents of UE students and establish direct communication with UE parents. Twice a year, the University of Evansville reaches out to parents asking them to support the University by pledging a gift to the Parents’ Fund. The Office of Annual Giving markets to these parents through direct mail, e-mails and phone calls.
The Parents’ Fund helps make possible all of the extra educational and academic opportunities that are central to your child’s educational experience, and helps ensure that financial aid is available to all deserving UE students . Your gift, no matter the amount, makes a significant difference and is very much appreciated.
What Parents’ Fund gifts really offer UE students.
- Financial assistance and scholarships
- Strong educational environment
- Top-notch faculty and staff
- Excellent facilities, campus resources, and programs
Your involvement is so important!
Parent participation is very crucial for growth and improvement, not only for our students but for the University as a whole. Your involvement with the Parents’ Fund will enable you to grow with your student and other parents. You will also stay connected and well-informed on campus events, activities, development, and University initiatives.
As an active Parents’ Fund member you will lead the way for our prospective and current students, alumni, and other parents who will join our UE family throughout the years.
"We are always very grateful to all parents who join the council and its various sub-committees. Parents direct involvement is key to the successful growth and advancement of UE. Parents’ Fund committee members show their support of UE by reaching 100% financial participation every year!”
“Through the Parents Council, I have been directly involved with campus development and activities. I am very pleased to know that UE listens to me and always appreciates my recommendations and feedback.” - Dennis J. Brand, former UE Parent and former Parents Council Vice Chair
