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!
