10 Ways for Parents to Stay Involved with Prescott College
1. Make sure we have your updated info!
We can’t stay in touch with you unless we have your current info – mailing address, e-mail and phone number. You can update your info online or by calling the Parent and Alumni Relations Office at (877) 350-2100 ext 4502.
2. Donate to Prescott College!
Continue the tradition of support from alumni and parents with a charitable contribution to the College. Each year, your support of the Annual Fund will help educate future generations of students. Every gift helps – from $5 to $5,000 – and every gift is tax deductible. Alumni who donate each year also activate their PCAA membership privileges. The easiest way to support PC is through our secure online giving site.
3. Join the Parent Association
Did you know that PC has launched a Parents' Association? Parents can get involved through active liaison committees participating in recruitment, raising funds for the Parents Supporting Field Studies Scholarship, and through internal communication. Join Today.

Prescott College hosts alumni and parent gatherings all over the country. This past year, we’ve brought alumni, parents, and PC friends together in California, New Mexico, Vermont, Washington, Colorado, Oregon, Tennessee, and locally. Keep an eye out for invitations in the mail and in the Parent eNewsletter, Trails Home!
6. Host a send-off picnic!
Throw a send-off party for incoming students in your area! If you would like to host a picnic in your area, please contact the Parent and Alumni Relations Office.
7. Attend Parent's Weekend!
Parent's Weekend is usually held in the Spring or in the Fall and provides the opportunity to see what your students are doing through faculty presentations, spend time with College administration and staff, meet other PC parents, and spend valuable time with your student. Keep an eye on the events calendar (or subscribe to it) for dates, locations
8. Be a Phonathon volunteer!
Every spring we hold an Annual Fund Phonathon to raise money for Prescott College. On campus, students call our alumni, parents and friends to ask for their support. As a parent, you can help too, no matter where you are! We value our volunteers who rally support for the College…not to mention those who donate during the Phonathon.
9. Did we mention donations?
In addition to the Annual Fund, you can make your tax-deductible donation to the Crossroads Center, the PC Endowment or even to your favorite program area at PC, like Arts and Letter or Environmental Studies.
10. Spread the word…
Perhaps one of the best ways that you can stay involved is by spreading the word about Prescott College. This is one of the biggest ways that students hear about the College and PC folks make connections out there in the world. Keep talking about PC!
