Parents Committee Job Description

The Parents Committee is designed to give interested parents the opportunity to be more closely connected to their child's St. Lawrence experience and to support the school in a variety of ways. No matter where they live, Parents Committee members actively participate in strengthening St. Lawrence (often through telephone, e-mail and written communications).

Each member agrees to:

  • Make a leadership gift of $1,500 to $50,000 annually to the Parents Fund
  • Increase their gift to the Parents Fund each year by any amount they are able
  • Participate in one or more of the activities best suited to their interest
  • Attend as many Parents Committee meetings (during the Fall Family Weekend and the Winter Parents Committee Weekend) as possible

In recognition of their volunteer efforts, members of the Parents Committee receive:

  • Housing reservations during Family Weekend, Parents Committee Winter Weekend, and graduation weekend (rooms are limited and reserved on a first-come, first-served basis)
  • Special seating for their child’s Commencement ceremony
  • Invitations to special receptions on and off campus
  • Regular communications designed for St. Lawrence volunteers and leadership donors from the President
  • A subscription to The Hill News, our student newspaper
