Thank you for making the Blue Demon Challenge a success!
$50,000 = UNLOCKED!

We did it! We reached 1,000 donors and unlocked $50,000. 

It's not too late to make your gift! Visit DePaul's giving page and have your gift counted toward the Blue Demon Challenge total. 


The Blue Demon Challenge is the day when alumni, families, friends, students, faculty and staff come together to give back to DePaul University. This year, our 5th annual Challenge is bigger than ever! If 1,000 people make a gift TODAY (Thursday, February 22) a generous donor who wishes to remain anonymous will give $50,000 to the General Scholarship Fund, which provides need-based scholarships and helps to keep DePaul University accessible to all students, regardless of ability to pay.

One week ago, we were watching the live gift counter and waiting to see if we’d reach our Challenge goal. We’re pleased to share that thanks to YOU, the Blue Demon Challenge was a tremendous success!


During the Challenge, members of the DePaul University community came together and surpassed our 1,000-donor goal. In total, 1,057 alumni, parents, faculty, staff, students and friends made a gift, and raised over $120,000 for scholarships, schools and colleges, athletics, and more. 


Your support will have a lasting impact on DePaul, and we are fortunate to have a community, here in Chicagoland and across the globe, of supporters like you. Generosity like yours sets an example for the future.


Thank you again for your support and for unlocking $50,000!
