Tuesday, March 18, 2014 3:35:00 PM

The Alumni Challenge is halfway to meeting its $50,000 goal. More than 400 alumni have met the Challenge with $25,000 in gifts and pledges since its launch on Jan. 31. But we still need your help. 


When the Challenge reaches its goal of $50,000, all qualifying gifts will be matched, dollar-for-dollar by our generous Challenge team:

  • Lisa (Petesch) Badran, B.A., ’87, M.E., ’90 and
    Souheil Badran, B.A., ’88, M.B.A., ’97
  • Barbara (Thomas) Barone, B.A., ’63 and Frank Barone
  • Lori Craig, B.S., ’92, M.S., ’09
  • Laurie Tines Peregrine, B.S., ’06 and Frank Peregrine

Proceeds from the Challenge will be directed toward scholarships, faculty support, technology and other student-centered initiatives.

Qualifying gifts include the following contributions to the Stritch Annual Fund or Santa Chiara Fund:

  • 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)
