Parent Giving

Parent giving is an integral part of TCU’s annual fund-raising effort. As a parent, you already appreciate the value of a college education, but you might not know that tuition only covers a portion of that cost. Each year, hundreds of TCU parents generously contribute supplemental funds to help maintain the excellence of our educational programs.

The University needs the help of every family to continue to maintain a world-class, values-centered experience for our students. TCU parents generously give more than $3 million each year to make that experience possible. Your gift, regardless of the amount, is a vote of confidence in TCU and the importance of your child’s education.
