Giving Programs

The Parkland College Foundation provides opportunities to give to Parkland College through a variety of different manners. Currently, Parkland College offers our donors two options for giving on an annual basis. 

Annual gifts provide   

President's Circle

The President's Circle was created to recognize and honor donors who generously provide gifts to the Parkland College Foundation. President's Circle members strengthen the relationship between Parkland College and its donors, confirming the value of an annual gift to the college. 

President's Circle encourages dedicated individuals who are committed to Parkland to make a generous gift of $500 or more annually. These generous donors help us channel financial resources to sustain the good work of the college and secure opportunities for our children that can be found when a community has its own institution of higher learning as a partner for success.
