Legacy Gift

Give back so that others can go forward...

The Legacy Gift is the annual graduating class gift in support of scholarships. Last year, the Class of 2016 left their legacy with nearly 1900 gifts raising over $21,000 for future students. The Class of 2017 will now continue this tradition by leaving a legacy of their own. By making a gift of any size, you not only demonstrate your commitment to DePaul University and its mission of giving back, but you will also receive a legacy cord at cap and gown pickup in June. Wear your cord at commencement to show your support for the Class of 2017 Legacy Gift.

Why should I give?

Looking back at your time at DePaul, many of your memories and opportunities would not have been possible without the generosity of alumni and donors. It is our turn to express our gratitude for the experiences we have had at DePaul by joining together to leave a lasting legacy.

Additionally, by supporting the Legacy Gift, we not only enhance the reputation of DePaul University and add value to our degrees, but we also ensure that future students will receive the excellent DePaul education that we have enjoyed.
