Barnard Parents Annual Giving

Ensuring Excellence at the College

Barnard family

Barnard parents give to Barnard because they understand the importance of their gifts in enhancing education and student life at the College. By generously supporting the College, Barnard parents—as well as alumnae and friends—enable Barnard to provide the highest quality liberal arts education to promising, high-achieving young women. 

A gift to the College has an immediate impact. Here’s a sampling of what annual gifts support:

  • Day-to-day needs of the College. Parents' gifts help support our internationally renowned faculty and their scholarly research, faculty-student research collaborations, internships, and a vibrant campus life, including activities for every interest.
  • Financial aid. One of every 2 students (51%) receives some form of financial aid. Annual Giving helps to ensure that the College will be able to admit students from diverse backgrounds and financial circumstances.
  • The “hidden scholarship.”  Even students whose families pay full tuition receive a 31 percent subsidy of their education, when all costs are considered.
