The Wooster Fund logo with Tartan arrow 

A gift to The Wooster Fund supports virtually every program on campus and therefore is a gift that benefits every student, every day. Each year, gifts from thousands of Scots ensure that Wooster has the funding to meet its greatest need.   

These gifts are a crucial complement to our tuition revenue and endowment, supporting every aspect of the College's work, and allow us to be nimble and respond to emerging needs.

As we look ahead to the future, we know The College of Wooster will continue to evolve, while still holding true to the values and traditions for which this institution is known. Many have expressed a desire to support specific aspects of the Wooster experience that mean the most to them. With that request in mind, we are happy to provide the opportunity to select the area for which you would like to see your Wooster Fund gift applied.

Parent and Family Giving

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.
