Parents Leadership Council

The Parents Leadership Council (PLC) comprises Gettysburg College’s most committed parents, whose philanthropy sustains and enhances outstanding academic and co-curricular programs while strengthening the College’s reputation.


Members are leaders in financial support through annual gifts of $5,000 or more to the Gettysburg Fund and other areas of the College. We also ask members to consider making a lasting impact with gifts to the endowment or to other College priorities that are meaningful to their family.  

Special Events

Parents Leadership Council members are invited to special events during Family Weekend and at other times throughout the year. They also have the opportunity to attend biannual meetings during which they will spend time with College senior leadership.


A chair of the Parents Leadership Council holds an ex officio non-voting position on the Board of Trustees. PLC members are confident ambassadors for Gettysburg College because they are equipped with current information. As parent leaders of the Gettysburg College community, PLC members demonstrate a philanthropic spirit and a passion for Gettysburg College.

If they choose, members may further assist Gettysburg College through Advancement, Career Engagement, and Admissions initiatives.
