Legacy Gift

Give back so that others can go forward...

The Legacy Gift is the annual graduating class gift in support of student scholarships. Last year, the Class of 2017 left their legacy over 2,000 gifts raising over $23,000 for future students. The Class of 2018 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 2018 Legacy Gift.
