Parents Fund

Often parents are surprised to learn that tuition only covers part of the total cost to educate their student. The University relies on the generosity of its parents, alumni and friends to help make up the difference.
By donating to the Dominican Parents Fund, you help support existing and emerging programs that strengthen student experiences at Dominican.


As part of our Annual Giving campaigns, the Parents Fund provides resources to the distinctive qualities that set Dominican apart and create the Dominican Experience. Student research, study abroad opportunities, service-learning, career services and academic support are just a few ways that Annual Giving makes a difference at Dominican.

The gift of Opportunity

YEAR 1: Support first year programs, such as Big History and Peer Mentoring, or increase opportunities for our students by donating to the scholarship fund.

The gift of Connection

YEAR 2: Deepen the connection our students have with Dominican with a gift that supports the Sophomore Colloquium or campus-wide community engagement project.

The gift of Discovery

YEAR 3: Help our students discover their interests and provide support for internships and study abroad opportunities.

The gift of Inspiration

YEAR 4: Inspire our students to find their passions with a gift that supports career workshops, senior research and networking events.
