Parent Fund

The Parent Fund supports annual projects to enhance our campus and provide special programs that make the Centre Experience unique.

Centre Alumni rise to a challenge – again!

Thank you for helping us celebrate this historic anniversary in such bold fashion! When we announced the Colonels Challenge in October we expected it to take a few months to complete. But, in typical Centre fashion expectations were exceeded and the goal of 500 new Colonels Club members or Associates was met before the end of the year! As a result an anonymous donor has awarded Centre a $500,000 gift.

To celebrate the success of our Colonels Challenge, we are thrilled to announce the beginning of another Trustee backed challenge. The Alumni Challenge will match every new alumni gift made now through June 30, 2013 with a $100 gift.

Make a gift today and meet another challenge with us!

The Parent Fund allows parents to make a tangible difference in the quality of students’ lives on campus. By supporting the Parent Fund, you enhance the Centre Experience for all students.

The Parent Fund not only supports such vital College needs as recruiting and retaining the best faculty, upgrading learning technology, and improving campus facilities, but also campus enhancements and extra programs that make Centre such a special place. The Parent Fund has sponsored projects like the renovation of a video screening room in the library, the addition of a campus game room in the new student center, and free newspapers in campus hotspots.

The Parent Fund provides an opportunity for parents to touch the day-to-day lives of Centre students. Every gift, regardless of size, represents an investment in the Centre Experience today and tomorrow. When students call home with tales of relaxing in the game room or screening a video in the library, Parent Fund supporters can smile proudly and know that they have made a difference.
