The St. Bonaventure Parent Leadership Circle is a new volunteer network created to give families an opportunity to build a closer connection to the University. The goal of this group is to equip parents with a deeper understanding of the University’s mission, promote resources and opportunities available to students, and assist with volunteer efforts related to future endeavors of the University.
We encourage members to explore and partner in areas where they are most interested and have expertise, including the following:
Members are asked to attend two meetings each academic year, which occur on Family Weekend and February Winter Weekend. These bi-annual meetings take shape around an agenda that includes: administrative updates; presentations from faculty, students, and campus leaders; dialogue around key issues on campus; and time to visit socially with fellow members. Robust attendance and active participation enhance the experience for all members and help to ensure the university can benefit from the collective insight of the entire group.
Parent philanthropy plays a crucial role in building and shaping an exemplary educational experience for St. Bonaventure students. We ask members to commit to leadership-level gifts of at least $1,000 per fiscal year, and to consider a significant commitment during or after your student's tenure at St. Bonaventure.
As leaders in the Bonaventure community, members will enjoy a high level of engagement and recognition, as well as opportunities to personally engage with St. Bonaventure University President Dr. Dennis DePerro and other university leaders. Additional benefits include complimentary tickets to cultural exhibitions and athletic events.
