Lifetime-Members-2010Lifetime members are a cherished group within the Parker Alumni Association and the Parker University family. Lifetime members support provide essential philanthropic support to the Parker Alumni Association Endowment fund which supports the Parker Alumni Association Endowed Scholarship.

The Parker University Alumni Association Permanent Endowment Fund was one of the first permanently endowed funds at Parker University (former known as Parker College of Chiropractic). This endowed fund represents the alumni association’s desire to financially secure the longevity, vision, and future of Parker University and its mission to serve chiropractic. Interest generated from this fund is distributed annually at the discretion of the alumni board to those projects, programs, and efforts which enrich the academic and research potential of the institution.

Throughout the history of the lifetime membership program, 22 students have received scholarship support directly from the Parker Alumni Association Endowed Scholarship. This wouldn’t have been possible without the generous support of our lifetime members!

The Parker Alumni Association Endowed Scholarship is an endowed fund, meaning that the donated funds themselves are never spent. Scholarships are awarded from the interest earned on the fund. The larger the overall fund grows from support of lifetime members, the larger our scholarship awards can be!

Lifetime membership is achieved through a gift of $1500. This gift can be made in one payment or split into multiple payments. To join now:

The Power Campaign

Since the early 1980’s our legendary founder recognized the continuous giving of individuals by awarding them ‘more power.’ He held these individuals to the highest level of recognition because they helped build his vision.

Thirty years later as we embark on a new period of growth we want to continue Dr. Parker’s idea of giving you ‘more power.’ You can now take your support of Parker to the next power!

For every $500 donation to the Alumni Association Endowed Scholarship Fund, you will be awarded an additional power. You can determine the level of power you want to reach today. By supporting the Alumni Association Endowed Scholarship Fund, your gift lives on in perpetuity.  Endowed gifts themselves are not spent; they are permanently invested so that scholarships can be given off of the interest it bears.

For every power you add, we will update our Donor Wall of Honor to recognize your continued support. Next time you are on campus visit the south building, first floor wall outside of the Donovan Lounge.

Donating to Parker University

Gifts of all sizes add up to a substantial sum. In fiscal year 2013–2014, alumni collectively gave over $813,000 to Parker University.

Participation in Parker University is also an important indicator of alumni engagement—a message to corporations and foundations who might offer large gifts that the alumni support their University.

A commitment to Parker University is an ongoing “vote of support” for Parker.
