The Parent Fund is an important source of unrestricted support for Eckerd College. Gifts to the Parent Fund directly support students and programs. Because tuition does not cover the complete cost of an Eckerd education, the Parent Fund enhances your student’s experience at Eckerd.
Your support of the Parent Fund shows faculty and staff your appreciation and ensures that quality resources and opportunities are available to your student and his or her peers.
Gifts to the Parent Fund can be made:
- By calling Jesse Turtle '91, Director of Special Gifts, at 727.864.8403
- Or by mailing a check to Eckerd College, Office of Advancement, 4200 54th Avenue South, St. Petersburg, Florida, 33711
Each year, parents of graduating seniors give a gift in honor of their student's accomplishments. Is your son or daughter graduating in May? Join this Eckerd tradition by making a donation to the Parent Fund in honor of your student's achievement!
Each and every gift to the Parent Fund makes a difference. When you make your gift, please include your student’s name and class year. The Parent Council will send a card to your child notifying him or her of your gift to Eckerd. Your gift to Eckerd is a great example to your student, who will learn the importance of giving back to his or her alma mater as an alumnus.
