The Blue Demon Challenge is DePaul University's day of giving, when alumni, parents, friends, students, faculty and staff come together to give back—and this year, our Challenge is bigger than ever! Your gift of any size can help us get one step closer to reaching our biggest goal yet: raising $3,000,000 in a single day.
There are over 50 matches and challenges to unlock funds for the people, places and causes at DePaul you care about most, and there will be additional challenges and matches added throughout the day. Make your gift and help make DePaul history!
Don't miss BDC Live! our 24-hour video stream highlighting stories, conversations and Q&As with members of the DePaul community, with new content premiering throughout the day. BDC Live is hosted by Connor Mudd, class of 2021 and chair of DePaul's Campus Activities Board.
