Matching Opportunities and Giving Challenges

Crowdfunding Projects:

Crowdfunding at Valpo partners with student organizations and campus departments to raise funds that will significantly enhance the student experience for current students. Valpo welcomes the support of alumni, family, friends, faculty, staff, and students who want to bolster the success of the Valpo experience by supporting these crowdfunding projects.

Athletics Team Challenge Grants:

For the third straight year, Anne Bowman ’77 J.D. and Leroy Schramm ’66 are generously providing challenge dollars to the athletic programs whose alumni participate the most. The following challenges are based on donor numbers, not dollar amounts, so any gift over $10 will count!
     • $5,000 – Highest percentage of alumni participation per team
     • $5,000 – Total number of alumni donors per team
     • $5,000 – Highest number of new alumni donors per team

Sorority and Fraternity Alumni Challenge:

The Panhellenic and Interfraternity Councils are challenging each fraternity and sorority to engage with their alumni as part of Valpo’s Day of Giving. The fraternity and the sorority with the highest level of alumni participation during the 2018 Day of Giving will receive a $250 gift, after the Day of Giving concludes, to the organization’s national philanthropy in their chapter’s name.

The Guild Endowed Scholarship Fund:

The Guild Board of Directors has issued a $10,000 challenge and will match dollar-for-dollar any gift made to the Guild Endowed Scholarship Fund or Guild Annual Fund.


Learn more about matching gift opportunities and giving challenges throughout the Day.
