The Parents Fund Committee

The Parents Fund Committee is a group of past and current family volunteers who are dedicated to enhancing the Beloit College experience for our students. Being a part of the PFC is a way to take an active role in furthering Beloit’s mission as a parent and a donor – and we definitely keep your valuable time in mind. PFC members attend as many of the bi-annual meetings on campus as possible (one in the spring and one on Family weekend in the fall), do a few phone calls and/or write a few thank you notes each semester, and support the Parents Fund with a gift each year. All PFC members support the college with their time and talents.- There are many ways you can contribute your skills to the PFC and we appreciate all forms of volunteerism. Since your child is having a great experience at Beloit, you are in a wonderful position to tell Beloit’s story and inspire others to support Beloit.

See the first-hand experience of one PFC member here.

move in dayWhat is the Parents Fund?

The Parents Fund is part of the Beloiter Fund and is a vehicle through which families and friends of current students and alumni can enhance the educational opportunities Beloit provides today's students. With tuition, room, and board covering around eighty percent of a Beloit education, the College relies on the generous support of its alumni, parents, and friends to bridge this gap. Eleanor Chiquoine’76, mother of two Beloiters Alec’07 and Liz’13, is the chair of the PFC.

Why Support the Parents Fund?

Parent, grandparent and family support is crucial to sustain the combination of programs and opportunities unique to Beloit College. Unrestricted gifts to the Parents Fund are one of the most effective ways to maintain the value and excellence of a Beloit education. Parents Fund donations go to work immediately to fund the core priorities and strategic needs of Beloit. The Parents Fund is a collection of hundreds of gifts from hundreds of families; their support is vital and greatly appreciated.
