Parent Participation Challenge

Progress GraphFebruary is Parent Participation Challenge Month at Union.

The Parent Participation Challenge establishes a tradition of philanthropy among current parents and encourages you to give back to Union College. This challenge is all about participation—that means every gift, regardless of size matters. Whether it is $25 or $10,000.

Honor your student and/or recognize a professor, administrator or employee who has made an impact on your student’s experience. Both will receive an acknowledgment card indicating this special tribute.


As parents, we are an integral part of our students’ experience at Union. From move-in day, attending Homecoming & Family Weekend, athletic events, artistic performances, the Steinmetz symposium, and commencement, we are actively engaged with our students’ lives while developing our own personal connection to the Union community. Many of these co-curricular experiences wouldn’t be possible without the support of the entire Union family.

The Parent Leadership Council serves as a working group to manage parent volunteers and to increase parent engagement and support. Join us in the Parent Participation Challenge by making a gift to the College today. The class that achieves the highest parent participation by the end of February, will earn a study break for winter term finals. This challenge is all about increasing our parents participation, every gift counts, no matter the size. Make your gift today!

Thank you for your support,

Union College Parent Leadership Council
