Help us ensure your students' success — at Homewood and beyond

Hopkins undergraduates are renowned for their academic rigor and love of research. Today, with support from the Hopkins Parents Fund and other sources, they also enjoy an enriched student experience that provides a crucial balance to the classroom, library, and lab — an experience that not only strengthens their personal and professional development, but also helps rank Hopkins as a top destination for the great students of tomorrow.

You can help your students succeed. Whichever path you choose — whether it's giving to the Hopkins Parents Fund, participating in the Senior Parent Challenge, or Leadership Giving Circle, or by establishing an endowed scholarship — your gift will help us do even more to make the Hopkins undergraduate experience second to none.

Contact us to learn more about these and other opportunities, for which your gifts are needed at every level.

Give to the Hopkins Parents Fund

With your gift to the Hopkins Parents Fund, we can foster increasingly meaningful relationships among our students and our neighbors throughout Baltimore through programs such as the President's Day of Service. Your gifts also enable us to produce engagement programs like the annual Lighting of the Quad as well as student-led lecture series that provide venues for the free exchange of incisive and challenging ideas such as the Foreign Affairs Symposium.

Support the Senior Parent Challenge

Your gift to the Senior Parent Challenge — which allows you to recognize your Blue Jay or a professor, coach, or mentor who has made an impact on your son or daughter — makes you a vital partner to your students' success and supports traditional celebratory events during Senior Week.

Endow a Scholarship

Your investment in scholarships makes it easier for undergraduate students to obtain a Hopkins education. Endowed undergraduate scholarships are eligible for the President's Match. Please consider providing Krieger School of Arts and Sciences and Whiting School of Engineering undergraduate students with crucial financial aid.

A closer partnership: donating leadership gifts to the Hopkins Fund

Your gift at Leadership Giving Circle levels make you an even closer partner, and enables you to participate in the President's Reception during Family Weekend and Commencement and interact with school leaders and faculty at regional events.

Giving Levels

President $25,000
Dean $15,000
Leader $10,000
Member $5,000

Leadership Giving Circle members at the Leader level and above receive family seating at Commencement and name recognition on the Hopkins Parents Fund Wall of Honor. Leader level members are also eligible for Hopkins Parents Council membership. Donors at the President level may also be eligible for President's Parents Roundtable membership.
