Make a Gift Today!

As a Terp parent or family member, you can make a difference in the student experience by supporting programs and scholarships that will make the University of Maryland a memorable and significant part of students’ lives. Take a moment to learn about the different ways that you can have an influence on our campus and make a lasting impact at Maryland.

Terp Family Fund
The Terp Family Fund benefits your student from the moment they enter UMD. Gifts from parents and families enrich various aspects of your Terp’s experience by supporting programs and initiatives that enhance the campus environment and prepare students for a lifetime of success. Your gift advances our mission in the Division of Student Affairs, and enables us to ensure that every student thrives in an inclusive community of care. Every gift matters and sends a powerful message that you believe in the Maryland experience and our commitment to your student.

Your contribution provides support for programs and resources that directly benefit students, including student health and wellness programs; academic support and tutoring services; Terps After Dark late-night, alcohol-free student activities; career development support; student leadership resources; and much more!

Terp Family Student Scholarship Fund
The Terp Family Student Scholarship Fund was established by the Terp Family Council to provide support for current undergraduate students who may be unable to continue their education at the University due to extenuating financial circumstances. Since 2006, more than 250 students have been awarded a scholarship, enabling them to continue their education at (and graduate from) the university.  With your help, we can reach even more students who may have to leave UMD unless they receive assistance.

Terp parents and families play a significant role in strengthening our community, and we hope that today you will make a generous gift to the Terp Family Fund or the Terp Family Student Scholarship Fund. Your gift reaffirms your belief in the Maryland experience and demonstrates your commitment to all of the things that make the University of Maryland extraordinary.

Gifts in support of the University of Maryland are accepted and managed by the University of Maryland College Park Foundation Inc., an affiliated 501 c(3) organization authorized by the Board of Regents. Gifts are tax deductible as allowed by law. Please consult your tax advisor.
