President's Club

Founded in 1981, the President's Club is the annual giving honor society of DePaul.

We honor and recognize all those who have generously shared their personal resources to affirm and sustain the university.

Membership in the President's Club is an expression of your commitment to DePaul University. Through this giving society, your generosity and individual leadership supports DePaul's Vincentian mission of providing a quality, values-based education that transforms student lives and their communities.

Big East Conference
Back again for 2012-2013 BIG EAST basketball: pregame receptions for President's Club members at men's and women's home games!

The "President’s Club Room" at Allstate Arena opens January 2, 2013 and will be available prior to each home game thereafter. In addition to complimentary refreshments, guests in the President's Club Room are welcome to "chalk talks" with men's basketball staff and a video message from head coach Oliver Purnell offering information on that game's opponent and game plan.

President's Club members are welcome to attend these pregame receptions free of charge, starting one hour prior to tip-off in the Southeast Party Room inside Allstate Arena. Additional guests are welcome to attend for $20 per person (cash only, payable on game day). Registration is required.

Pregame receptions are also available for all women's basketball BIG EAST home games! These receptions, held one hour prior to tip-off in the Lincoln Park Student Center, are complimentary for members with registration. The women's basketball BIG EAST season begins on January 5, 2013.

For more information or to register for the receptions, please contact Tracy Krahl, at Thank you! Go Blue Demons!

Take Your Seat
Support The Theatre School

Attention President's Club members! As you may know, The Theatre School is scheduled to open its new facility on the Lincoln Park campus in Fall 2013. To coincide with the opening of the new facility, we are offering alumni, donor and friends an opportunity to participate in the fundraising efforts by naming a seat in one of the facility's new performance spaces, the Healy Flexible Theatre and the Thrust Theatre. By purchasing a seat, donors will have the opportunity to leave a lasting legacy and have a plaque bearing their name on a seat within the theatres. This exciting opportunity is a wonderful example of how the President's Club-level giving requirement may be met this fiscal year! For more information or to participate, please visit Thank you!
