Parents Fund

In gratitude for the continual level of support our McKendree families provide to their student(s) and to our University, we are pleased to partner with you in maintaining a tradition of giving through our Parents Fund.


•   The cost to educate our students far exceeds the tuition charged and your gifts to McKendree’s Parents Fund allow us to continue to provide outstanding educational, leadership and learning opportunities to each of our students.

•   The commitment to philanthropy, evidenced by our McKendree parents, grandparents and friends, has an immediate impact on the lives of our students and the community in which they live and learn.

•   These gifts from our parents and families are considered unrestricted which means they are put to use in the area where the University has the greatest need, including:


•   Student Scholarships

•   Facility Upgrades

•   Technology Upgrades

•   Research Opportunities
