A new fundraising initiative at Andrews University assists funding for scholarships, facilities renovations, faculty support, curriculum development and increased student activities. In an effort to enhance the educational opportunities available to students, this parent-led project targets other parents with a mutual concern in their children?s education.
Though still in its early stages, the Parent Giving Program has already raised over $25,000 from parents of current students. Two couples, both parents of undergraduates and alums of Andrews University, head the campaign. Dan and Carol Lewis act as Parent Chairs while Laurence and Debbie Habenicht are the Freshman Parent Chairs. Dena King, Coordinator of Annual Giving at Andrews says, "They are visible examples of parents who give generously to support Andrews University even while they are paying tuition for one or more students."
