Giving to Merrimack

Family Giving

Welcome, Merrimack College Families!

Families play an important role at Merrimack and we hope you will be involved with the community. 

Your talents, networks, financial contributions and insights as current parents make a positive impact on the student experience now and in the future. You are the Family Giving team’s partners in helping every student thrive and achieve their full potential.

How You Can Help

  • Encourage parent philanthropy through support of The Merrimack Fund.
  • Engage leadership donors through our Parents Leadership Council.
  • Welcome families to join us for our signature events including Homecoming Weekend.

Get Connected

We are excited to launch a variety of parent and family programming starting in fall of 2021. Parents also participate in many of the signature events hosted by the Office of Development and Alumni Relations and the O’Brien Center for Career Development.

The Family Giving team communicates regularly with parents through print and electronic pieces. We share highlights of campus life and stories of how your philanthropy impacts the daily experiences of our students.

Our Parents Leadership Council (PLC) is a select group of philanthropic leaders who act as ambassadors for the Merrimack College community. To learn more about our Parents Leadership Council, please contact Kelly Feeney, Director of Family Giving or visit the PLC website
