Your gift to the Parents Fund improves all aspects of campus life for today's students.
It provides critical support the College can use to meet current needs - and has an immediate effect on your daughter's overall experience. The fact is: your gift really does matter. Tuition covers only 43 percent of the actual cost of a Wellesley education. Each student - even those who do not receive financial aid - benefits from a "silent scholarship," made possible by gifts from parents, alumnae and friends.
