Join the Parents Council »

We are proud of our parents’ engagement with the campus community and their strong tradition of financial support of the Parents & Families Fund. Parents and families who give back to Meredith serve as a testament to the unique strengths of the Meredith experience.

The Parents & Families Fund is an important component of Meredith’s annual fundraising efforts. Gifts from parents, grandparents, and Parents Council members support a campus enhancement initiative known as the Parents Project. These projects address a priority identified by our students, allowing us to show them their input is valued. Your investment serves as an important source of funding that is used immediately so your student can enjoy the improved facilities and programs. All families are encouraged to make a gift to the Parents & Families Fund. Click here to make your contribution today!
