As a parent, you understand the needs, cares and concerns of other parents. For some, your investment in the life of your student may prevent you from making a gift to the Fund. For others, a minimal gift is affordable and, coupled with gifts from other parents, can produce significant results.
When Bob and Mary Grace Bozeman had the opportunity to hear a Baylor scholarship recipient speak at a Parent's Network breakfast last fall, they were moved to action and began supporting the Parents Fund.
"When you hear stories like that and witness the love they have for the university and the sacrifices they've made, it's pretty easy to want to contribute and to help those students. They are deserving, and you want them to have the same opportunity as your children in being able to attend Baylor," Bob Bozeman said. "I think Baylor does a great job in highlighting situations where students who have come to the University are struggled financially. And, while we're not through funding our own child's education at Baylor, my wife and I believe it's important to try to contribute as we can for those students who are less fortunate."
