Parent Giving

Today, support from parents means more than ever before. Puget Sound, as are universities everywhere, is strained due to the necessary response to COVID-19. Your gift today allows for the continued flexibility to deliver technological resources to ensure online learning is an engaging and impactful space, enhance advising and learning services for students,  and supports the university's commitment to keep faculty and staff (many of them students) as financially whole as possible, and more. Your gift every year makes it possible. 

As of August 31, 2020, the Puget Sound Fund has received gifts from 65 parents, totaling $10,925.

Gifts from parents support every aspect of a Puget Sound education. You  choose how you'd like to make an immediate impact:

  • COVID-19 Response: Deploy your gift now to offer the financial flexibility needed to guide students and the campus community through this global crisis.
  • Puget Sound Fund Scholarship: Help ensure that all talented and deserving students can attend Puget Sound, regardless of their financial means.
  • Academic Programs: Provide technological resources to ensure a Puget Sound education delivered online is engaging, impactful, and accessible.
  • Faculty Support: Support our faculty as they adapt teaching and curriculum to a virtual space until we are able to return classes to campus.
  • Student Life: Maintain a high-level of advising, wellness, and learning services to students who have navigated a quick transition away from their campus support system.
  • Campus Enrichment and Maintenance: Help enhance the character of our campus and ensure the safety of our physical space for students, faculty, and staff when we return to campus.
