Parents Fund

Parents supporting CMC

The CMC Parents Fund is a vital source of financial support for the College. It help enhances experiences such as the Athenaeum, sponsored internships, and study abroad. Unlike endowment gifts, gifts made to the Parents Fund are spent in the same year in which they are donated – thus directly benefiting the exceptional student experience.

Last year, 791 CMC parents made a gift to the Parents Fund, contributing more than $900,000. This year, the Parents Fund aims to again raise at least $900,000, and to increase the number of families participating to 900.

Join your fellow parents in their Sprint to Spring, as they try to reach 75 households donors between February 17 and March 10, the beginning of Spring Break.

Whether you are the parent of a current student or a graduate, please consider joining your fellow parents in giving to the Parents Fund. Gifts of every amount matter and make a difference in the everyday lives of CMC students. Thank you!
