Parent Support

Graduation 2010There are numerous ways parents can participate in the educational process to make a difference for all UMW students.

  • Make a Gift to Support Your Student’s Education
    Less than 22 percent of UMW’s operating budget comes from the Commonwealth of Virginia. That means nearly 80 percent comes from tuition, fees, and gifts from parents, alumni, and friends. Your gift to Mary Washington is an investment in the University’s services and programs. It also says, “I believe in the education my child is receiving at the University of Mary Washington.”

    Join the Parent Leadership Circle and participate with other UMW parents who believe in UMW’s mission to educate UMW students as leaders who shape the future. Parent Leadership Circle members choose to support the University with annual leadership level gifts. For more information about the Parent Leadership Circle, contact Lee Ann Reaser at or 540/654-2069.
