Giving at South Carolina

Parents Annual Fund

If you are looking for ways to support your student, consider the Parents Annual Fund. Gifts to the fund strengthen the living and learning environment at the University of South Carolina.

What is the Parent Fund?

We created this tax-deductible fund as a way to satisfy parents eager to demonstrate their support for the university chosen by their students. You will be able to contribute to the programs and services that directly impact Carolina students and parents.


Past Projects

  • Renovations to the Russell House University Union
  • Enhancements to Career Center technology
  • Lights for the intramural fields at the Strom Thurmond Wellness and Fitness Center


Current Projects

The Parents Annual Fund is currently funding an initiative called Dinner Dialogues, started in fall 2006 to enhance interaction between faculty members and undergraduate students. Meant to spark dialogue in an informal, comfortable, fun and unique setting. Students and professors can discuss academic and current issues, potentially establishing a mentoring relationship that would assist in the students’ personal, career and professional growth. With assistance from your donation to the Parents Annual Fund, your students have the opportunity to build a relationship with their professors.


Your Involvement is What Matters Most

Your participation in the Parents Annual Fund is more important than the size of your gift. Whether your gift is $25, $250 or $25,000, we ask that you do give. Your gift provides important resources to enhance the college experience and improve educational opportunities for students.
