Parents Fund Council

Mission Statement

The mission of the Parents Fund Council (PFC) is to build relationships with parents that lead to increased interest in financially supporting the University of Delaware through the Parents Fund. The work of the PFC results in increased financial support from a parent base that understands and communicates the needs of UD. Volunteers are donors who serve as advocates of the University, and focus their fundraising efforts on securing gifts of $1,000 or more. The Parents Fund Council works through the Office of Development and Alumni Relations.

The following is a list of expectations for Council members. A dedicated and active Council will ensure success in meeting goals and increasing participation.
