Parents & Family Leadership Council

Quinnipiac University has long valued parents as partners in students’ education and success. With this in mind, the Quinnipiac Parents & Family Leadership Council was created to provide a direct avenue for meaningful communication between the university administration and involved parents. As members of the Parents & Family Leadership Council, we invite you to engage in and join a partnership focusing on the continued success of QU. Membership is open to parents and family making an annual philanthropic gift of $5,000. Corporate matching gifts help you qualify (e.g., $2,500 plus $2,500 corporate matching gift = $5,000 Parents Council gift). Contributions to Quinnipiac University are tax deductible for federal income tax purposes to the extent provided by law.

As a member, you will be invited to two meetings per academic year with university leadership and fellow council members, receive exclusive parent email updates, and have the opportunity to attend many invitation-only receptions, including parent and family networking and social events. Members receive multiple opportunities to meet, advise and network with university leadership and administration, deans, faculty, staff and fellow families.

Quinnipiac Family Fund

The Quinnipiac Family Fund directly supports initiatives that enhance and contribute to the student experience, with an immediate impact benefitting all students. Creating a transformative and impactful experience for all is the foundation of the Quinnipiac Family Fund; providing vital support and the flexibility to direct resources to new priorities and areas of need during the academic year. Enriching all areas of student life and activities, the Quinnipiac Family Fund contributes to academic support and excellence, student leadership opportunities, diversity education and global experiences, and service and community-based learning, to name a few.

Through the generosity of our Bobcat Parents and Families, the Quinnipiac Family Fund ensures success for students on campus today, and for the University of the Future.
