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 a generous gift from one of Valpo’s alumni, $50 will be added to the first 2,000 gifts received for a total of $100,000. So 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 this challenge!

MAKE A GIFT

The first 2,000 gifts received in response to this year's event will be matched with $50 from alumnus Craig Maass '81. Learn more about the many matching gift opportunities and giving challenges being sponsored throughout the day
