Parent and Family Giving

A Unique Perspective

As the parent or family member of a Wellesley student, you have a uniquely informed perspective on the many powerful ways your student thrives at Wellesley—in the classroom, on the campus, in the community.

Many families choose to celebrate their student’s Wellesley experience with a gift to The Wellesley Fund. Your gift to this annual fund translates into direct, immediate revenue in the year it is given, benefiting financial aid, academic programming, career education, student-faculty research, internships, and the beautiful campus our students know as their second home.



Leadership Giving

We encourage interested families to join the Durant Society by making a leadership-level gift of $2,500 or more—a tangible investment in the life of the College and its students.

Family Durant Society members are invited to attend Durant Society events, which may include receptions at the President's house, during Friends and Family Weekend, commencement, and other regional and on-campus events, when public health conditions allow. Members are also invited to hear the latest academic and student news from College leadership via conference calls.
