Parents Fund

You are critical in the day-to-day operations of ECU. You demonstrate commitment. You support tradition. You spark passion. You help educate students.

As we all know, paying for college education is an expensive undertaking; however, providing a quality education is also expensive. Annually, the cost to operate East Carolina University approaches $400 million. Fortunately, only ten percent of that cost is passed along in the form of tuition. While the State of North Carolina does provide assistance to the university, private contributions are playing an increasingly larger role in ensuring our ability to offer quality educational and enrichment experiences for students-including your student.

The ECU Parents Fund provides support for Division of Student Life programs that enhance a student's education by providing critical opportunities that are outside of the classroom. Leadership training, career days, multicultural awareness programs, health fairs, and intramurals are just some of the programs that benefit from the support of parents.

Simply click on "Parents Fund" below. Under the area you wish your gift to support select 'Division of Student Life', under account select 'Parents Association fund', and put your gift to work for students today! Giving online is safe, easy and paperless. You will also be adding to the impact of your gift by saving the university administrative costs. Your gift makes a difference in the lives of our students!
