Parents – We are Counting on You on 2/27/18!

On February 27, 2018, Meredith College is holding its third annual giving day known as “Make It Count for Meredith.” Our goal is to raise $350,000 between 12:00 a.m. – 11:59 p.m. The 24-hour challenge encourages all members of the Meredith community to get involved – parents, grandparents, alumnae, faculty/staff, and friends of the College.

How do I make my gift?
Visit to make your contribution online on February 27, or call (919) 760-8202. Make your gift in honor of your strong daughter, and we will notify her that a gift has been made on your behalf.

What is the Parents Fund Project this year?
We are excited to support several security initiatives to make our campus community even safer. Per the recommendation of Al White, Chief of Police, gifts will be used to:

  • implement a system that will capture license plates of vehicles entering campus
  • install an electric stop arm at the guard house for night-time hours
  • renovate the guard house to enhance security presence and visitor’s experience

How much should I contribute?
ALL gifts are greatly appreciated and make a difference – we encourage you to give at a level of your choice. You may also consider an amount of $127 in celebration of the College’s anniversary or participating in one of our Giving Societies:

  • Onyx Society – 3 consecutive years of giving                                             Any amount
  • Meredith’s 127th Birthday                                                                                    $127
  • Iris Society and Parents Council Membership                                                 $1,000
  • Iris Society – President’s Circle and Parents Council Membership                 $5,000
  • Iris Society Major Gift Supporter and Parents Council Membership             $10,000+

Whether you are making a gift to The Parents Fund or another area of interest at the College, you are positively impacting your student, her friends, and future Meredith women. Learn about improvements that have been made over the past few years as a result of contributions made by our generous parents.

Thank you for Making It Count during our upcoming celebration!
