Pioneer Parent Fund

A Message to Parents

Thank you for choosing to send your child to Alfred State! Our students, benefit from the exceptional academic experience they receive at Alfred State. However, their experience and life-long lessons can go from exceptional to life-changing with your help to the Alfred State Pioneer Parent Fund. The Fund is one of the most effective methods for parents to collaborate with the college to provide programs such as national competitions, and civic engagement and student leadership programs.

What do gifts to the Pioneer Parent Fund support?

National Competitions

The parent fund provides support for students, classes, and organizations interested in participating in national competitions such as Baja SAE competition, Basic Utility Vehicle (BUV), Robotics, Fireball Run, culinary arts, and more. It is all hands-on, and our students learn to be innovative, creative, and apply skills readily so that they can “Hit the Ground Running!”

Civic Engagement and Student Leadership Programs

ASC students helping to rebuild HaitiThe parent fund directly supports new student-led initiatives that help provide our students with the civic and leadership skills they need to continue our college’s commitment to making the world a better place; whether it is earthquake-ravaged Haiti or participate in diversity training or host Veteran's Appreciation Day to thank our veterans.

These incredible opportunities help our students become professional, responsible, and caring adults we're proud to call Alfred State alumni.
