Parent Philanthropy Message

My wife Robin and I are proud to be Emory parents, and we’ve chosen to participate in the Emory community by serving on the Parent Leadership Board. This volunteer board supports and represents the parents of all undergraduate students at Emory. By donating our time, energy, and financial support, we make a difference for Emory University. We believe that parents should lead by example, and we hope that our commitment to Emory will provide a good example for our kids. Paying it forward—giving back to a community by demonstrated efforts—should be life-learning experiences for all our undergraduate children.

We are keenly aware that tuition alone does not cover the costs associated with providing a healthy and fulfilling undergraduate education. Partnering with Emory’s administration, faculty, and alumni, we parents of enrolled students can help provide the resources Emory needs to capitalize on its great reputation and continue to grow in stature.

It is with great pride that we support Emory University and all the university has to offer. I invite you and your family to consider doing the same during this academic year.
