Annual & Special Giving

Yearly gifts make a huge difference.

DePaul asks our alumni, friends and parents to support the university through an annual gift. Annual support helps DePaul secure the resources needed to fund the university's most immediate needs—including financial aid and scholarships that attract and retain academically talented students from Chicago and around the world.

Donors have the opportunity to apply a gift to a specific area of the university or designate their support to the Fund for DePaul which helps meet the university’s most immediate needs. The annual giving year runs concurrently with the fiscal year of the university, July 1–June 30.

Those who make a gift to DePaul consecutively for three or more years are welcomed into the True Blue Society which honors the university's loyal annual supporters.

Telefund: We look forward to talking with you!

We have found that no one can express the mission of DePaul better than our own students. When you receive a call from the DePaul Telefund, there is always an excited DePaul student on the other end of the line. The DePaul Telefund program reaches out to alumni and parents to keep the DePaul community informed of university news and explain the importance of annual giving. When one of our student fund-raisers calls, please take a moment to learn more about what's happening at the university and how you can help.
