Today Is the Blue Demon Challenge: Give Now!
Today is the Blue Demon Challenge, 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 TODAY can help us get one step closer to reaching our biggest goal yet: raising $5,000,000 in a single day!
For nearly 50 years, a degree in public service at DePaul has fueled successful careers in government agencies and nonprofit organizations by emphasizing critical thinking, communication skills and hands-on experience. During the Blue Demon Challenge, your gift to the School of Public Service (SPS) can go even further:
- School of Public Service Challenge: If we receive 25 gifts to the School of Public Service, Molly M. and Harry B. Hartman, Arlene Murphy, and Rev. Patrick J. Murphy C.M. (MBA '75) will give $50,000 to the Hartman-Murphy Endowed Scholarship!
This fund is created in memory of the Hartmans' daughter, Molly Jean Hartman, who passed away in 2008. Molly’s life was enriched by her study abroad opportunities, which led her to France, London, and Tunisia throughout her high school and college experiences. She was an advocate for the less fortunate, and a champion for the rights of young women in developing countries. Molly’s family has generously chosen to honor her life by providing her beloved study abroad opportunities to others through support of the Hartman-Murphy Endowed Scholarship fund in SPS.
Today, you can help make DePaul history while adding to the study abroad opportunities for SPS students. Give now!
