18 Days Left to Support the Parent Fund

May 03, 2021

There are 18 days left of the Parent Council's Parent Fund campaign. When this campaign began on April 5 the goal was to raise $3000 to support students. As of today, $4,015 have been raised, all from parents of current Webster students! With the last 18 days, the Parent Council has challenged themselves and all Webster parents to get us to $5,000 by the time the campaign ends on May 21, 2021. 

The Parent Fund is awarded to students that meet certain criteria and is done every fall and spring semester. As a fund that is supported only through financial contributions, it is important that the Parent Council continues to find parent donors to keep the Parent Fund viable as a source for student support. 

The members of the Parent Council hope that you will donate $10, $50,  $100 or whatever level you are comfortable to support Webster students when they need it most. 

“We recognize that education is a tremendous commitment in terms of time, capability and means. Everyone hits a roadblock from time to time, and while we can't do anything to help a student overcome a gap in capability or in balancing workload, we CAN help a student overcome a brief financial hardship with our donation to The Parent Fund. We would not want to see a student fail to complete their college journey because of a temporary financial roadblock.” 
 
- Maxine and Dan Retzer, Parent Donors 

 Please join the Parent Council and give before May 21.

We Reached Our Goal!

April 26, 2021
The Parent Council launched their Parent Fund Crowdfunding Campaign two weeks ago on April 5, 2021. As of today, we are at 109% of our campaign goal! You read that right, 109%! This goes to show how amazing and supportive Webster parents are of not just their student but all Webster students. 

We still have 25 days left of this campaign. Imagine how many students we can help in the future if we blow this goal out of the water! Join the Parent Council as they challenge you to hit $4000. Will you join them?

Students turn to the Parent Fund as a last resort financial resource to pay down the balance on their accounts so they can enroll for the next semester and ultimately graduate. The Parent Fund is awarded to students that meet certain criteria and is done every fall and spring semester. As a fund that is supported only through financial contributions, it is important that the Parent Council continues to find parent donors to keep the Parent Fund viable as a source for student support.

“We support the parent fund because we believe in the educational opportunities at Webster University. We believe that the Parent Fund is an excellent resource at Webster to help the next generation of students continue with their educational pursuits when life has thrown them some curveballs. Not every parent can help every student, but if every person who is able, gives a little, it really adds up and means a lot to those on the receiving end.” 

 ~Carrie and Brian Schildroth, Parent Donors 

Please consider giving to the Parent Fund and supporting our students with a donation of $10, $25, $100 or whatever level you can. Together we can make sure Webster students can persist and graduate.
