The 1898 Society

Since its founding in 1898, DePaul University’s Vincentian heritage has remained at the heart of our mission. With your support, DePaul provides opportunities for students from all walks of life the chance to fulfill their dreams of a college education.

The 1898 Society recognizes donors who invest in DePaul’s long legacy and bright future through gifts of $1,000 or more in a single fiscal year (July 1 – June 30). Members, made up of alumni, parents, faculty, staff, students and friends help DePaul provide scholarships, attract and retain distinguished faculty, enrich academic programs and expand the student experience by directing gifts to the areas that are most personally meaningful. The commitment made by members of the 1898 Society makes a powerful, lasting statement about the value of investing in DePaul.

As philanthropic leaders, members of the 1898 Society will receive curated news and updates from DePaul, invitations to special events, and the knowledge that their generosity helps thousands of students fulfill their potential.
