Parent Giving

Parent Giving is a key part of our yearly annual giving effort, and supports current students at DePauw. 

Parent giving gives DePauw the flexibility to pursue its mission of educating students in an environment that embraces intellectual change and social experiences. It is designed to unite the philanthropy of our parents. Gifts to The Fund for DePauw strengthen your ties to the University and make an immediate impact on your child’s education.
