Because we believe that the family and friends who support our students are truly part of the Georgetown family, we are excited to introduce a new opportunity for parents to leave a unique mark on the GC campus through The Parents Campaign.
During the 2013-14 academic year, the GC faculty and staff were united through what we called the Family Campaign, an on-campus effort to demonstrate to students, alumni, and friends that employees so believe in the mission of Georgetown College that a financial contribution from them could have great impact.Â It was an overwhelming success with 80% of the employees participating – up from just 37% the previous year! This new Parent’s Campaign further extends our Family Campaign and we invite you to be a part of it!
Gifts to the Parents Campaign make a tangible difference in the quality of studentsâ€™ lives on campus. The funds raisedÂ will support the greatest needs on campus including:
- campus enhancements in outdoor lighting
- additional video surveillance in parking lots
- additional â€˜comfyâ€™ lounge spaces and study areas across campus
- upgrading learning technology
Dr. Roger Ward, a professor in the Philosophy Department and co-director of the Christian Leaders Scholars program, shared with us some thoughts about being a faculty member and father of a current GC student:
As a long time faculty member of Georgetown, I believe in the educational opportunities we provide for students. When my daughter chose to attend Georgetown four years ago I have to admit I was curious how she–and we–would like it. We love it! Rachel has traveled, been challenged in classes, encouraged to apply for a Fulbright, and basically just had a great time. We are so happy with the friends she has made and the way she has grown academically and spiritually.
Every gift to the Parents Campaign, no matter the size, makes a difference in your studentâ€™s education and Georgetown experience. You can make a gift on our secure web site or mail your check to:Georgetown College Parents Campaign 400 East College Street Georgetown, KY 40324 Â
