Parents Fund

Parents Continue the Tradition of Giving…

Parents are important members of the SJC community. We know that your support helps our students to succeed, and we consider it a privilege to partner with you in their education.

We encourage you to become familiar with the College’s programs and to share in the rich academic, social, serviced based, and cultural experiences our students enjoy.

The SJC Parents Fund, through annual gifts from parents of current and past students, supports undergraduate education and is a vital funding source that creates unique opportunities across campus. Every Parents Fund donor, no matter the size of their gift, enrich life at SJC.

Why are gifts to the St. Joseph’s College Annual Fund important?

You Make the Difference
Your investment in the Parents Fund creates long-term impacts in shaping the College’s future. At the same time, your gift has an immediate effect on today’s students. By giving to The Parents Fund you are ensuring a full and active extracurricular experience for your child while at St. Joseph’s.

Parents who make a gift play a crucial role as their sons and daughters discover their talents, enrich their minds and take steps toward realizing their aspirations. Parents can greatly benefit our students’ experiences through their personal philanthropic support.

What does a gift to the St. Joseph’s College Annual Fund support?
Gifts to the Parents Fund support four main areas, all directly connected to undergraduate life:

Student Life and Student Government Association (SGA)

The Parents Fund provides essential support to Student Life, a department that provides sponsorship for programs committed to enhancing the entire student experience. Funds will also be directed toward the SGA, a group that oversees all student activities and is the voice and advocate of every student at St. Joseph’s College.


Scholarships

At SJC, 85% of our students receive financial aid or scholarships. Much like their predecessors that walked through the doors in 1916, many of today’s students are the first in their family to go to college. The Parents Fund supports scholarships to help students realize their dreams of receiving a quality education.


Career Services

The Office of Career Development and Engagement provides personalized services to assist students in mapping out and discovering their career goals. Access to additional helpful resources, such as training videos, help students prepare for their job search. The Parents Fund helps provide supplemental resources needed to obtain career readiness tools.


Athletics

The Parents Fund allocates resources to Athletics to support all sports and intramurals. Participation in campus recreation facilities and programs provide students with a wide variety of health and social benefits, benefitting their extracurricular experience.
