ECU FAMILY FELLOWS
Engage in the Life of East Carolina
Your student has embarked upon a special time of leadership and exploration at one of the region's best universities. We invite your family to participate in the journey. With a gift of $2,500 or more each year, you join the East Carolina Family Fellows - investing in ECU, supporting the success of all of our students, and gaining a special perspective about our campus, our faculty and staff, and other parents.
Through the East Carolina Family Fellows, a gift that changes the lives of others can be life-changing for you, too.
For a weekend each spring, East Carolina Family Fellows are invited to Greenville for a special program. Members of the East Carolina Family Fellows are also invited to regional events and to webinars hosted by campus leaders.
Become a proud Pirate Parent today and surprise your new graduate with a unique way to honor and celebrate their time at East Carolina University through giving.
Leave a Family Legacy through an unrestricted gift to the Parents Fund and a temporarily restricted or endowed fund that awards a grant every year in your graduate’s name. This fund will support ECU’s parents fund AND a program of your choosing. This can be a student organization, undergraduate scholarship, academic program, libraries or department.
This symbol of recognition allows you to stay connected with your Pirate family and provide resources and tools for future generations of students.
Eligibility begins with a gift of $5,00 or more to the Parents Fund, payable in a lump sum or pledged over two years. Above the $5,000 Parents Fund commitment, families can create and name a fund in honor of their student, family or simply give additional support to ECU Parent Fund for programs and scholarships.
Major Gifts and Endowed Funds and Scholarships
Parents can also pledge $25,000 or more over a period up to five years.
When the major gift/fund is established, families will choose the Parents Fund AND a University program, organization, or area as the official recipient of the yearly award. $5,000 of the gift will go to the Parents Fund with additional funds designated to a club sport, organization, academic department, libraries or University program of your choosing.
