Parents' Annual Giving

Providing an exceptional education and experience to our students requires consistent annual support, and gifts of all sizes, from thousands of parents, alumni and friends, come together to make this possible.

The Duquesne Parents' Fund, the parents' contribution to the University's annual giving program, The Duquesne Fund, makes the difference every day for all students across the Bluff.

The Duquesne experience transforms every student in different ways. No matter what aspects mean the most to your family, your annual gift to The Duquesne Parents' Fund ensures that today's students enjoy the same life-changing benefits that students on the Bluff before them remember and cherish.

What will your gift benefit? You decide!

Every donor, every gift, every year - enhances every aspect of the Duquesne experience. Donations are spent in the year they are received, so they have an immediate impact on our students. Your gift may be:

  • Unrestricted, providing the university with financial flexibility and stability to address areas of greatest need;
  • Or, designated to the school of your child's study or to key initiatives that have made an impact on your child's Duquesne experience

Whatever you choose, your gift goes to work right away to benefit our students.

We invite you to explore opportunities to get involved and learn more about how investing in The Duquesne Parents' Fund makes a difference on campus and beyond.
