Parents and families, we want to say a resounding THANK YOU to all of you who have made a gift to the parents’ campaign of the Wake Forest Fund this year. Our fiscal year will close on June 30th, so we are in the final stretch of our campaign.
To date, we’ve received gifts from 2,561 current and past Wake Forest families – which is a record for parent participation. You believe in Wake Forest, and believe in the work we are doing to educate your sons and daughters so they can leave here as adults and head off for lives of purpose and meaning and to change our world for the better.
We are still looking for 60 WFU families to make a gift so we can reach our goal of 2,621 donor families. If you haven’t made a gift yet, you can make a gift securely online, or mail a check (must be dated/postmarked by June 30th) to: Parents’ Campaign, P O Box 7227, Winston-Salem, NC 27109.
Finally, we want to hear from parents and families who have made a gift. We are featuring donor families this week – so whether you’ve given $10 or $1 million, we want to talk to you and hear why you believe in Wake Forest. If you’d like to be featured, email the Parent Programs office at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can set up a time to connect with you.
The Office of Family Engagement provides information and support to Wake Forest parents, guardians, grandparents, and family members. The office maintains the Family Engagement Page of the Wake Forest website, which is the primary vehicle of communication with families, as well as our Facebook and Twitter presence.
