Alumni Challenge

Make a gift to Stritch and our 2014 Alumni Challenge team will match it!



Time is running out! 
We are just $4,634 and 100 alumni donors away from meeting our 2014 Alumni Challenge. Stritch's fiscal year ends July 31 - consider a tax-deductible gift today to the Annual or Santa Chiara Fund.

Why is now the best time to give?
You can double or even triple the impact of your gift during the Alumni Challenge. No matter the amount, all qualified gifts will be matched dollar-for-dollar! Make an Alumni Challenge gift here


The 2014 Alumni Challenge is officially on! Help us raise the Challenge goal of $50,000 for Stritch and our Challenge team will match it for a total of $100,000. Proceeds from the Challenge will be directed toward the University's 2013-14 goal of $2.35 million for scholarships, faculty support, technology and other student-centered initiatives.

Through the leadership and generosity of five Stritch alumni, gifts from graduates to the Annual Fund or Santa Chiara Fund will be matched, dollar-for-dollar, in the following situations:

  • Alumni who renew a gift made last year (Aug. 1, 2012- July 31, 2013) 
  • Alumni who make a first-time gift in 2014
  • Alumni who increase their gift to Stritch over their last gift (match applies to the increased amount)

For example: Make a gift of $100 and it will be matched 100%, doubling your total gift to $200.

The match applies to the first $50,000 in gifts received. Donate today to double your impact. The Challenge launches Jan. 31 and concludes once the $50,000 in matching funds have been allocated on or before July 31, 2014.

Triple your gift to Stritch! If you or your spouse works for a company with a matching gift program, your challenge gift can be matched by our challenge team and your employer. Check with your employer’s human resources office for information on their match policy.

Accept the Challenge by making a gift TODAY!
