The Parents' Fund

Amherst Offers Choices

From the study of neuroscience to classical Greek, from study abroad in South Africa to lab research, from internships in computer science to performance in athletics or theater, Amherst offers choices. Make a gift to the Parents' Fund to sustain and expand those choices.

Amherst offers Parents' Fund supporters directed giving. You may choose to designate your gift within the Parents' Fund to one of the following:

  • Current Priorities
  • Academic Life
  • Student Life
  • Arts
  • Athletics
  • Financial Aid

Families who contribute $1,821 or more qualify for the 1821 Society, our leadership giving society. Last year, leadership gifts accounted for nearly 90 percent of dollars raised by the Parents’ Fund.
