Parents Council

Quinnipiac University has long valued parents as partners in students’ education and success. With this in mind, the Quinnipiac Parents Council was created to provide a direct avenue for meaningful communication between the university administration and involved parents. Membership is open to parents making an annual philanthropic gift of $2,500 and more to the program they choose to support.

Parents Council members are invited to informative meetings with university leadership and fellow council members, receive exclusive parent email updates and have the opportunity to attend many invitation-only events, including at the University Club. They are encouraged to partner in areas where they are most interested such as connecting with our Career Development Office, welcoming first-year families and acting as university ambassadors.

Parents and Family Fellows

In addition to receiving membership in the Parents Council with all its privileges, Parents and Family Fellows make a difference to the causes they care deeply about while strengthening and celebrating our Quinnipiac community in perpetuity. With annual gifts of $10,000 and more each year, members are invited to join their philanthropic peers in exclusive gatherings with Quinnipiac’s president and top leadership. Fellows and their students enjoy a unique, highly individualized Quinnipiac experience while helping today’s students succeed, building a family legacy and making a difference to the world via their Quinnipiac education and influence.

Corporate matching gifts help you qualify for the Parents Council and Parents & Family Fellows (e.g., $1,250 gift plus $1,250 corporate matching gift = $2,500 Parents Council gift; $5,000 gift plus $5,000 corporate matching gift = $10,000 Parents and Family Fellows gift). Contributions to Quinnipiac University are tax deductible for federal income tax purposes to the extent provided by law.
