HPU Families

pc-meetingInvestors in the High Point University Parents Council play a dynamic role in HPU’s success through their annual support of the HPU Fund for Extraordinary Education, along with gifts of their time and talents.

The Parents Council is open to all parents and families who are interested in supporting the University’s mission of delivering educational experiences that enlighten, challenge and prepare students to lead lives of significance in complex global communities. 

Throughout the year, Parents Council investors support the University by:

- Making an annual leadership gift of $1,924 or more to the HPU Fund for Extraordinary Education to provide scholarship assistance to High Point’s extraordinary students;

- Serving and participating in one or more of the Parents Council Committees.

- Attending semi-annual meetings held at Fall and Winter Family Weekend.

In addition to recognizing the philanthropic efforts of Parents Council investors in the President’s Circle Annual Honor Roll of Donors, High Point University is pleased to be able to extend a number of opportunities to Council Investors through our Gratitude Program including invitations to select campus events and special messages announcing major University news and milestones.
