The Parents Fund offers parents and families the opportunity to play a role in building and shaping an exemplary educational experience for Mason students. You can be part of every student’s success by giving a gift of any size at any point throughout your student’s time at Mason. Since the Parents Fund was created in 2014, we have raised almost $234,000 to date. The 2020 Parents Fund Impact Report highlights the impact of your contributions to the Parents Fund. Inside, you will see stories from students who have directly benefited from your gifts, as well as a breakdown of how support from the Parents Fund has touched many aspects of our campus community. Thank you for investing in the student experience at Mason. Your generosity is deeply appreciated!
