6. If Social Media Isn’t Your Strong Suit:

a. Email a picture with your caption to Alumni@valpo.edu, and we will post it for you.

b. Send an email to your friends. Here is a sample message:

As you have heard, Valparaiso University is challenging alumni to a Day of Giving, Proud to be Valpo Challenge. I made my gift this morning at www.valpo.edu/proudtobevalpo. Thanks to the Forever Valpo: Annual Giving Challenge my Valpo Fund gift was matched. Be sure to give early to make your gift count! And, if you would be so kind as to email a few more of your friends to ask them to give, it would be much appreciated. Think of the impact we could have if every alumni told just two or three of their friends about making a gift for Valpo’s Day of Giving!

MAKE A GIFT

A generous $2 million challenge made possible thanks to the Rev. Mark ’71 and Kathy Koepp ’71 Helge allows annual giving gifts made on Valpo’s Day of Giving to be matched! Learn more about matching gift opportunities and giving challenges throughout the Day.

GET INVOLVED

Whether you are near or far from campus, there are plenty of opportunities to get involved and show you are Proud to be Valpo.
