You can help to support the Parent and Family Services Office and Syracuse University

You can direct a gift to support a particular office like the Parent and Family Services Office, division of Enrollment and The Student Experience 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 Parent and Family Services Office (formerly the Parents Office) be sure to select "Specific School or Program" and then select Parent and Family Services Office in the "Schools and Programs" menu.
There are two funds to which you can give:

  • The Parent and Family Services 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 Parent and Family Services 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
Syracuse University
Parent and Family Services Office
306 Steele Hall
Syracuse, NY 13244

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