The Parents Committee enhances the University of Virginia student experience through annual gifts from parents of current and former students. The fund supports student life and organizations, safety and health, University traditions, diversity, and parent resources. Since 1980, the committee has enriched that experience with grants to student groups and fundraising for special projects.

Any student, University organization, or department that provides services, programs and projects to University of Virginia students is eligible to apply for funding.
The U.Va. Parents Committee mission is to enhance the student experience for all U.Va. undergraduate students.
