The Parents & Families Fund 

WKU is fortunate to have a Parent and Family Programs Endowment, known as the Parents & Families Fund to provide support for the Family of the Year award that began in 2007. 

Make a Gift 

The Family of the Year award recognizes the family of a current WKU student and provides a scholarship to the nominating student of the winning family. WKU Parent & Family Programs has a goal of a fully endowed fund of $100,000 to provide the capacity to expand the award to include an additional award for the Legacy family of the year.  


In addition to growing the Family of the Year student scholarship, gifts to the Parents & Family Fund help PFP support student directed initiatives and non-university funded programs that support student success.  


Gifts to the Parents Fund help the Parent and Family Programs enrich the lives of WKU students for years to come.
