Whitman College Parents Fund

The Parents Fund is an annual campaign that asks parents for gifts that will enhance every student's success. The main focus of the Parents Fund is to support the Student Engagement Center, Whitman's office for internships, career counseling, networking opportunities, resume development, civic engagement and much more.

Gifts to the Whitman Parents Fund help make possible the outstanding educational opportunities that are part of your student's Whitman experiences and give Whitman a critical edge in providing the best possible liberal arts education. You can make a gift to the Parents Fund online through the Parents Fund Giving page.
