The Parents Fund


Parents play a critical role in campus life here at BGSU. Your support provides a high-quality experience both inside and outside of the classroom, in a safe and nurturing environment. Whether it’s Family Weekend, Sibs N Kids Weekend or beyond, having parents active on campus and in the community is a special aspect of the student experience. When you make a gift to the Parents Fund, you help BGSU improve student engagement, retention and other programming to enhance the lives of students. Please consider supporting The Parents Fund today!


"The Parents Fund makes many opportunities possible at BGSU by supporting programs and initiatives that promote student success. I am grateful to have the support of generous donors like you who give back to enrich the BGSU experience for students like me. I hope you will consider making a gift to The Parents Fund for BGSU to afford other students the same opportunities I’ve had."

-Scott Knapke, College of Education and Human Development
