4. 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 a generous gift from one of Valpo’s alumni, $25 will be added to the first 2,000 donors for a total of $50,000. 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!

Thank you for spreading the word!

MAKE A GIFT

 

The first 2​,​000 donors who make a gift in response to this year’s event will be matched with $25 from alumni Ed ’68 and Janice ’68 Wesemann. There are a number of matching gift opportunities and giving challenges being sponsored 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.
