Washington and Lee University

Parents Fund

Washington and Lee is renowned for the enthusiasm and devotion of its parents, students and alumni. Anyone who has ever experienced move-in day, strolled on the Colonnade over Parents and Family Weekend, or witnessed the pride in family faces during commencement realizes that our parent and family community feels a unique and uncommon bond to this university. Because of this, we are fortunate to have a strong parent network who reinvest in their children's education by supporting the W&L Parents Fund.

The Parents Fund supports every aspect of your student's education. Your student directly benefits from the generosity of your gift; from equipping the science and computer labs, building the library collections, and maintaining W&L's historic buildings and grounds just to name a few. More than ever, we need your contributions to keep W&L strong.

The Parents Fund is comprised of unrestricted annual gifts donated by non-alumni parents and families of current and past W&L students.
