Parents Fund

Parents of current students can become more closely involved with the University by participating in the Parents Fund, a component of the University’s annual giving program. Contributions to the Parents Fund are designated to the Douglas and Judith Krupp Library Fund. Support from the Parents Fund helps to provide:

  • A dynamic learning environment merging traditional library services with extraordinary technologies
  • Access to more than 150,000 items, including 20,000-plus print and electronic journal subscriptions and databases
  • Access to career information including databases that provide company information students can use to learn about potential employers

Parents Council

The Parents Council is a leadership group of Bryant parents and families who strengthen the University through annual gifts of $2,500 or more (including corporate matching funds). In 2017, the 30 members of the Parents Council contributed more than $1 million.

Leadership giving

Leadership gifts of $2,500 or more to the Parents Fund qualifies parents for the following:

  • Recognition in Bryant’s Honor Roll of Donors
  • Special invitations to campus receptions and events, including our Annual Champions for Philanthropy Gala and Parents Circle Breakfast
  • A customized bookplate on the inside cover of a book in the Douglas and Judith Krupp Library bearing the name of your child, or your family name, along with a facsimile for you as a special thank you

  • Serve as representatives of the Parents Council at Regional Alumni Network events
  • Attend or host receptions for prospective or admitted students
  • Recruiting other parents to broaden Parents Council participation
