This Challenge is made possible thanks to the generosity of the Rev. Mark ’71 and Kathy Koepp ’71 Helge. This Challenge is an opportunity for everyone to join in on making a difference here at Valpo. Your support changes lives for years to come through the Valpo students who go on to influence the communities and world they live in. The world needs more Valpo graduates … critical thinkers who lead and serve in church and society.

How the Challenge works:

Young alumni (undergraduates with graduation years of 1996-2016): Your gift of any amount, will be matched 3:1! Example: a gift of $100 will actually mean $400 for Valpo.

New and former donors: Welcome! We want you to help us kick things off this year! Your gift will be matched in full:

  • A 2:1 match on your entire gift for gifts of $1,000 or more
  • A 1:1 match on your entire gift for gifts up to $999

Returning loyal donors: Thank you for your continued support! We couldn’t do it without you every year. Any increase over last year’s gift will be matched!
