In honor of the University’s 75th anniversary celebration, a
special “75 Days of Giving for Stritch” campaign began Oct. 18 and runs until
Dec. 31, the conclusion of the 75th anniversary year.
75-day campaign aims to raise $37,000 for Stritch’s Annual Fund in honor
of the University's 1937 founding, and to attract 75 new donors for the fund. Donations to the Stritch Annual Fund are crucial to the continued funding
of programs, facility upgrades and student financial aid. Last year alone, more
than 1,000 students benefited from gifts made to the Annual Fund through full
or partial scholarships.
“We are excited to launch this special campaign that celebrates the many ways
this university has helped shape the lives of our graduates and how their
generosity in turn provides current students with those same life-changing
opportunities,” said Stuart Gilgannon ’03, co-chair of the Alumni
Association’s Fundraising & Campus/Community Outreach committee.
the campaign, donors will be asked to share why they support Stritch, its
mission and its students. The goal is to collect 75 responses that will be used
in future campaigns and highlighted on the giving page of the new Stritch
website throughout 2013. Each week, a new video will also be shared with the
Stritch community and on Stritch's YouTube channel, which will illustrate the impact donor support has
on Stritch and its students.
An integral part to the campaign will be the Fall Phonathon which
runs through Nov. 4. Students are calling alumni to share the
many exciting initiatives of the University and to ask for financial support of
the Annual Fund.
