We the People

We prepare them to lead productive and meaningful lives ... that's not a phrase that we take lightly. 

In 2017, JMU Career and Academic Planning reported that 91 percent of Madison's 2016 graduates were employed, in graduate school or engaged in other career-related endeavors within six months of graduation. That's Productive.

In 2016, a study by Gallup Inc. showed that JMU alumni possess a greater sense of purpose and personal well-being than their peers from other universities.  That's Meaningful.

Your gift to the Parents Fund reinforces this campuswide commitment. Your gift will support an engaged faculty that performs ahead of the Top 100 universities in caring for students; nationally recognized programs that allow students to not only learn, but also experience what life in their fields look like; and an exceptional track record of graduate success. 

Since the Parents Fund provides vital, flexible dollars for programs all over campus, your gift can enhance the Madison Experience in many ways. In the past, Parents Fund dollars have been used for:

  • developing new programs
  • retaining exceptional talent
  • strategic partnerships
  • enhancing safety and security around campus
  • expanding research and learning opportunities for students
  • increasing diversity initiatives that prepare our graduates to succeed in a global society
  • and growing programs that provide tutoring, career planning help, alternatives to drinking, community service-learning experiences and more.

For all of Madison ... make your annual gift to the Parents Fund.
