You can help to support the Parents Office and Syracuse University

You can direct a gift to support a particular office like the Parents Office, division like Student Affairs or one of the schools at Syracuse University that has special meaning to you.  Or you can give a gift to The Fund for Syracuse which can be used to support Syracuse University’s highest priorities, including day-to-day operating costs, classroom and laboratory instruction, and student programs. It can also go to the general scholarship fund to assist students who demonstrate financial need. No matter how you choose to give, rest assured that your gift will be put to good use where and when it is needed most.

Option 1:   Giving Online

Giving online is convenient. If you choose to designate your online gift specifically for the Parents Office be sure to select "Specific School or Program" and then select Parents Office in the "Schools and Programs" menu.
There are two funds to which you can give:

  • The Parents Office Special Needs Fund - Funded entirely by contributions from generous families, friends and alumni of SU; these resources are used to respond to the needs of students and their families in emergency and crisis situations.
  • The Parents Office Discretionary Fund - Contributions to this fund help to support the programs and services our office provides to parents and families.

Option 2:  Sending a check

If you would like to make a gift specifically to the Parents Office, please make checks payable to Syracuse University and mail them to:

Missy Mathis-Hanlon
Interim Director
Syracuse University Parents Office
228F Schine Student Center
Syracuse, NY 13244

Thank you on behalf of the students and families who benefit from your donation and our office.
