Parents Annual Fund
Engaging with Emerson
Parents support their students in myriad ways, but there are always more ways to get involved. By making a gift and by volunteering your time to the Parents Annual Fund, you are directly improving the quality of your student’s experience at Emerson.
Every year, Emerson faces unanticipated challenges and opportunities and relies on a consistent stream of unrestricted philanthropic dollars to seize those opportunities to improve the student experience. College funds such as the Parents Annual Fund encourage the collaboration of the Emerson community to help the College reach its full potential.
Volunteering for the Parents Annual Fund is another great way to make an impact. Parents can help raise money, organize events, speak on campus, or act as a mentor to students. Whatever your preference, we welcome your energy and involvement with the Parents Annual Fund!
By making a gift and by volunteering your time, you are directly improving the quality of your student’s experience at Emerson.
