UE Parents Make All the Difference

Gifts from parents help sponsor events such as The Purple Picnic and other campus programming giving your child a transformative experience.

Parents' Fund

Why is the Parents’ Fund so important?

Parents’ Fund is an annual, unrestricted sub-campaign for parents. The Parents’ Fund campaign is solely managed and operated by the Office of Annual Giving. The primary purpose of the Parents’ Fund campaign is to solicit current and former parents of UE students and establish direct communication with UE parents. Twice a year, the University of Evansville reaches out to parents asking them to support the University by pledging a gift to the Parents’ Fund. The Office of Annual Giving markets to these parents through direct mail, e-mails and phone calls.

The Parents’ Fund helps make possible all of the extra educational and academic opportunities that are central to your child’s educational experience, and helps ensure that financial aid is available to all deserving UE students . Your gift, no matter the amount, makes a significant difference and is very much appreciated.

What Parents’ Fund gifts really offer UE students.

  • Financial assistance and scholarships
  • Strong educational environment
  • Top-notch faculty and staff
  • Excellent facilities, campus resources, and programs
