Top 5 Reasons to Participate in All for DePaul

Help students

Today’s students are not so different from you. Like you, they have hopes and dreams for the future. But more than two-thirds of DePaul students need financial support to achieve those dreams. Your gift, combined with gifts from your fellow alumni, can go a long way toward alleviating students’ financial burdens.

2. To enhance the value of your degree.

Publications such as U.S. News & World Report look at alumni giving data when they rank universities. High rates of alumni giving can make a favorable impact on DePaul’s ranking, enhancing the value of your degree.

3. To uphold the Vincentian way.
