Parent and Family Giving Program

The purpose of Wooster’s Parent and Family Giving program is to connect parents and families of students and alumni to the mission of the College and provide meaningful opportunities to participate in the Wooster community through their time and philanthropy.

The Parents Advancement Committee (PAC) is a group of parents interested in engaging with the Wooster community through their time and financial support. Members commit to the Parents Leadership Circle level of $3,000 or more annually and meet twice during the school year.

Parents interested in discussing membership on the Parents Advancement Committee can contact us at giving@studyabroad.arkansasresearch.baraduo.com or by calling 330-263-2533.
