The Parents and Grandparents Campaign

Vandy FlagParents and grandparents are in a unique position to see first-hand the positive effects that Vanderbilt has on students. From semester to semester, you see new levels of maturity and confidence. And you know that lessons learned outside the classroom have almost as much impact as those learned in it.

The Parents and Grandparents Campaign enriches and enhances the high-quality programs and services Vanderbilt offers its students. Each gift increases Vanderbilt's margin of excellence and makes a vital difference to the university.

To speak to someone directly about various ways you can support Vanderbilt, please contact  the Parents and Grandparents Campaign Office .


Welcome from the Parent Campaign Chairs

On behalf of the Vanderbilt Parents Campaign, welcome to the dynamic community of Vanderbilt families. As parents, we have been pleased to see how Vanderbilt is providing our children with the opportunities to forge their own paths in academics and in life. We have seen their intellectual and personal growth excel, and we hope your daughter or son is enjoying the same positive experiences.

In recognition of a Vanderbilt education, we invite you to join us in support of the Parents Campaign this year by making a gift to your child’s school or to a specific university program that is meaningful to you and your student. Your generous support provides countless opportunities for each student to excel in the classroom, on campus and into the community. 

Thank you for your commitment to partner with fellow parents, grandparents and alumni who are dedicated to ensuring a world-class education for our future leaders, teachers, healers and problem-solvers.

We look forward to an exciting year! All the best to you and your family.
