The Graduates’ Family Endowed Fund
In 2008, an active group of parent volunteers collaborated with the Parents Program to create The Graduates’ Family Endowed Fund. They realized a growing opportunity to provide financial support to Villanova seniors faced with an unexpected financial need.
In the spring semester, parents of graduating seniors are encouraged to make a gift in honor of their sons and daughters to The Graduates’ Family Endowed Fund to commemorate their graduate’s achievement and to support future Villanovans in an unforeseeable time of need. The response from parents has been overwhelming, and since its inception, parents have contributed $570,000 to this unique initiative.
