Moore Family Asks Recent DePaul Grads to Help Raise Funds for Students

9 Sep

The Moore Family Challenge for Recent AlumniIn an interesting new development for recent grads, DePaul alumnus and trustee Patrick J. Moore has pledged to match all gifts of up to $5,000 made to the university by alumni who graduated from 1996 through 2011. The challenge is to raise $250,000 by the end of the year. Moore has stipulated that alumni contributions can be made to the scholarship or program of the individual’s choice, while his match will go to the Patrick and Elizabeth Moore Endowed Scholarship for students in good academic standing who show financial need.

As students return to campus this week, it’s easy to see the reasons to participate in this opportunity to help raise half-a-million dollars for DePaul. Recent alumni can remember the excitement of going to the university, where they met new friends, gained experience—and, of course, received a valuable education. The Moore Family Challenge is one way those who have enjoyed the benefits of a DePaul education can help the next generation of students share the dream of graduating from the university.

It’s programs such as the Moore Family Challenge that propel the Many Dreams, One Mission Campaign for DePaul forward. As the university works to sustain the funding necessary to provide top-quality programs to all students who seek education, regardless of background, widespread participation is necessary from all members of the DePaul community.
