Parents Fund

Family at OrientationThe Parents Fund represents the pride of parents and their dedication to our academic initiatives as a campus. All areas of the university benefit, including:

  • Student Scholarships
  • Arts and Cultural Programming
  • Faculty Development
  • Athletics

The SUNY Cortland experience is unique. It is fostered, cultivated and sustained by many groups, including alumni, board members, faculty, staff, students and parents. Each of these groups gives generously to our school. Parents are the pillars of personal strength and support for our students, and because of this they hold a special place in our Cortland family. We ask parents to give back to ensure the academic excellence and numerous opportunities of this College by giving to The Parents Fund.
