Parent Giving

Your Gift in Action

​Parents Fund

The Parents Fund, which is part of the Annual Fund, is one of the College’s top priorities. Since 1968, the Parents Fund has served as a vital resource to respond to the existing and emerging needs of students. It is another way parents can be a part of the PC community and help enhance the undergraduate experience. Parents Fund Gifts are put to immediate use and directed to the areas where they are most urgently needed, such as: student-faculty research; 100+ student organizations; internship opportunities and career services; state-of-the-art indoor and outdoor classroom spaces; and the College’s strong NCAA DI athletic program.​

Parents Leadership Council

​​​​​​​​​Parents Leadership Council (PLC) members serve as ambassadors and fundraisers for Providence College.  Council members are philanthropic leaders of the College and are vital in engaging the parent community.  In addition to leading the efforts of the Parents Fund, members may volunteer their time to support other priorities of the College.  Volunteer opportunities may include peer-to-peer solicitation, hosting new student receptions, regional events, or reaching out to incoming families to welcome them to the PC community. ​​
