Recharging a Ravens Card

Credit Card 1

Parents should be aware of how to add funds to their student's Ravens Card.  It can be done online with a credit card by following the link at the end of this article.

Note that your student must first set up the account and authorize you as an account user to have access to their account.  Once you have access, you can also view statements and make online tuition payments.

Recharge the Ravens Card - This link takes you to the site for adding funds and viewing statements.




Fall Phonathon Underway


The Franklin Pierce Parents Fund is an opportunity for parents to make a real impact on the Franklin Pierce experience of their son/daughter and their peers.  Gifts to the Parents Fund help our students by providing for scholarship assistance, campus enhancements, and student programs.

Each Fall we recruit a team of enthusiastic student callers to reach out to parents and other supporters to encourage their participation in the Parents Fund.  Please take a moment to speak with our student caller when they reach out to you, and consider making a generous tax-deductible gift.  Your support will make a significant difference!

For more information on the Parents Fund, visit our FAQ webpage.  You can also reach the Parents Fund office at (603) 899-4021.


Southern New Hampshire is a great place to visit to enjoy the colors of autumn.  I hope you can visit the area soon to explore all that it has to offer.

If you have thoughts on how we can enhance our Parents Association, or provide better service to our parents, please call or email me with your ideas.
