How Parents Can Support Meredith

Main Campus Drive - front entrance with new gate

As a Meredith parent, your strong commitment to the Meredith experience helps to inspire learning, leadership, service and personal growth of your daughter and her classmates. We are proud of the involvement of Meredith parents in our College community and have established a strong tradition of support through parent giving.

Each year, gifts from parents are directed to The Parents’ Fund. These gifts make an impact by helping to fund projects on campus that directly benefit students. Past Parents Projects have included:

  • the launch of Meredith Mentors, Meredith’s own alumnae mentoring online platform,
  • additional security lights in student parking lots,
  • support for renovations to the second floor of Cate Student Center and the Lowery Fitness Center,
  • increased security at the front gate including:
    • implementation of a system that will capture license plates of vehicles entering campus.
    • installation of an electric stop arm at the guard house for night-time hours
    • renovation of the guard house to allow for increased guard presence at the front gate.

The newly enhanced security initiatives will help allow us to maintain our reputation as one of the safest campuses in North Carolina!

The Parents Council will hear a proposal for the 2019-20 Parents Project at their October meeting. Stay tuned for a project update!

In the meantime, please consider making a tax-deductible gift to The Parents’ Fund to support a new and exciting program for Meredith students.  Make an online gift.  Your gift of support will lay the groundwork for this year’s project and sends a strong message of involvement, appreciation and confidence in your daughter’s education at Meredith.
