Support Parent Giving

The Parents Fund

The Parents Fund provides critical funding to support the highest priorities of USD. Gifts to the Parent Fund support much-needed scholarships, the development of academic programs, the enhancement of campus facilities and the retention and recruitment of esteemed faculty. The fund benefits our current and future students by allowing USD to maintain small class sizes and enrich student life on campus.

The Parent Partnership Fund

This fund was established by the USD Parents Association Board for the sole purpose of providing additional aid to students, preferably seniors, who are experiencing unexpected financial hardship and are at risk of withdrawing and not completing their education at USD. This fund is also used to enhance the university's Appeal Fund.

The Parents Fund Endowed Scholarship

This endowment provides annual scholarships to deserving students. Understanding the significance of scholarship support, the USD Parents Association Board created this scholarship to help deserving students who are in need of financial assistance. At USD approximately seven out of 10 students need some sort of financial aid. The Parent Fund Endowed Scholarship provides access to a USD education.
