Parent Philanthropy

Welcome UChicago Parents!

We know that you and your son or daughter have chosen to join the UChicago community for the endless potential it offers to each and every student. The diversity of ideas and opportunities in education, culture, athletics and more bring out the best in every student especially those who match the University with dedication and enthusiasm.

At the same time, we’ve also noted the power of parent support in the quest for never ending improvement at UC. As parents, you are  an integral part of the UChicago community and we encourage you to become involved. Your efforts can truly enhance the student experience through a variety of interactive opportunities.

Parents are among the most essential and dedicated UChicago volunteers, hosting and attending events, offering internships, and joining parent committees to help support the Parents Fund. Since the inception of the Parents Program seven years ago, parent support for the annual fund has grown each year, reaching $725,000 last year. Please check out the Volunteer Opportunities page to learn more.

Your participation is vital to the success of the College not just for our children but for future generations of students. We warmly welcome you, and offer to speak with you personally if we can be helpful in any way to further enhance the UChicago experience!
