One of the roles we have in the Parent Programs office is to manage the parents’ campaign of the Wake Forest Fund. The parents’ campaign of The Wake Forest Fund is an annual campaign to raise money for the University’s current operating budget. When parents make gifts to The Wake Forest Fund, the money is used for the University’s most pressing priorities – recruiting top faculty, providing leading edge technology in the classrooms and library, funding innovative academic programs and more.
We have a parent participation goal every year. This year we have a goal of gifts from 2,621 Wake Forest families – and right now we are at 2,396 gifts. That means we only need 225 more families to give to reach our participation goal!
If your family has not made a gift this year, please consider doing so. Your gift will help us provide needed funding for all the things that make a Wake Forest education so special to our students. It is also an important endorsement that Wake Forest parents believe in the mission and direction of the University and support it with their own giving above tuition.
You may make a gift online or send a check (dated and postmarked by June 30th) to: WFU Parents Campaign, P O Box 7227, Winston-Salem, NC 27109.
Thank you in advance for your support. Let’s see how fast we can reach that 225 family goal!
