From now until December 31, a group of generous Elmhurst College alumni will double the impact of scholarship donations to the College. The group is ready to match up to $50,000 in scholarship gifts with one-to-one donations of their own.
Scholarships support and enrich the Elmhurst experience for many students; 96 percent of students today receive some form of financial aid.
“My teachers, mentors and fellow students at Elmhurst helped me discover my calling, and today I’m equipped with the skills, experience and relationships to build a career doing what I love,” said Alex DeFranco ’14.
“Scholarship support is what makes it all possible, year after year.”
One hundred percent of gifts to the scholarship challenge directly support Elmhurst students.
“For students like Alex DeFranco, scholarship support can be a life-changer,” said Joseph Emmick, vice president of development and alumni affairs.
“Thanks to the generous alumni who issued this giving challenge, you can double your impact on students with bright futures like Alex.”
To double your impact, please make your gift before December 31, 2013. You can make your gift online or by calling us at (866) 794-1075.
