The Blue Demon Challenge, now in its fourth year, is DePaul's one-day giving challenge. It's a day for alumni, faculty, staff, students, parents and friends from all over the world to come together, give back and support DePaul.
Inspired by the challenge's past success, alumnus Rick Kash (LAS '68) will match gifts dollar-for-dollar up to $100,000 if at least 750 members of the DePaul community make a gift. You can designate your gift to any area of the university that's important to you, while the matching gift will support need-based scholarships for first generation students. Thanks to Rick's generosity, every gift makes an even bigger impact on February 23!
By making a gift to DePaul for the Blue Demon Challenge, you:
The Blue Demon Challenge is your chance to support the things that make DePaul special. When you make your gift to academic programs, scholarships, athletics, student groups or whichever aspect of DePaul you care about most, you're doing more than making a gift to a university. You're helping students prepare to change the world.
Because the entire DePaul community is coming together to see just how big an impact we can make in one day. If we can reach 750 donors today, we'll secure a dollar-for-dollar matching gift up to $100,000 from alumnus Rick Kash (LAS '68). During the Blue Demon Challenge, your gift is more important than ever!
You don't have to make a big gift to make a big difference. No matter how much you choose to give, your participation in the Blue Demon Challenge is incredibly meaningful.
That's up to you! You can direct your gift to the area of DePaul you care about most: a specific scholarship or program, The DePaulia, athletics and more. The matching gift will support need-based scholarships for first generation students.
