Parents Annual Giving


Ensuring Excellence at the College


Parents give to Barnard because they understand how important their gifts are to further enhancing education and student life at the College. Through their support, parents enable Barnard to provide the highest quality liberal arts education to promising and determined young women.

Gifts have an immediate impact on every aspect of our campus and the student experience. Here is just some of what annual gifts support:

  • Day-to-day needs of the College. Parents’ gifts help support our internationally renowned faculty and their scholarly research, faculty-student research collaborations, student travel and internships, career development programs, and a vibrant campus life.

  • The “hidden scholarship.” Even students whose families pay full tuition receive a 31 percent subsidy of their education, when all costs are considered.

  • Financial aid. One of every two students (50%) receives some form of financial aid. Annual Giving helps to ensure that the College will be able to admit students from diverse backgrounds and financial circumstances.
