Parent Programs Office

The Parent Fund for Davidson is an integral part of the college's Fund for Davidson. Each year, more than 1,000 non-alumni parents give to the fund, which directly impacts the lives of students by providing scholarships, library resources, technology, athletic equipment and more. Parent supporters enable us to implement exceptional programs and initiatives that better prepare our students to live lives of leadership and service.

Current and past parents contributed more than $1.8 million in expendable funds in fiscal year 2014 and donated more than $3 million for all endowed and capital projects.
