“I’ve been the recipient; I’ve been able to give.
They are both wonderful—you never know who is going to be touched by our giving at this moment.” 
—Sophie Haroutunian-Gordon ’61
The mission of the Alumni Association is to be the most engaged and impactful constituency in the Parker community. As an alumnus/a of Parker, you are a member of that Alumni Association—welcome, and we hope to see you soon!

You are critical to ensuring that Parker lives up to its mission by participating in one of Parker’s longest standing traditions: a commitment to greater access and affordability for children across the city of Chicago. This commitment helps to keep Parker a school where children of different backgrounds and perspectives can come together.

A gift to the Parker Fund, which supports financial aid, faculty recruitment and retention, educational programming and so much more, is a vote of confidence in your alma mater.

Alumni Giving

One of the many ways to stay engaged is by making a gift—of any amount—to Parker.

Parker alumni have a strong history of supporting the school and the endowment for current and future students—and by making a gift, you are continuing this tradition and strengthening the school for generations to come.

Reunion Giving

A memorable time for every class is Reunion Weekend! Each fall, we gather to celebrate alumni and their lives since leaving campus.

A special way to participate before you even set foot on campus is by making a gift in honor of your reunion. Each class recruits a Class Gift Chair to spearhead fundraising for that year to maximize the impact of their class gift to Parker.
