Elmhurst Launches Historic Giving Challenge

Elmhurst College recently launched the most ambitious fund raising challenge in the College’s history.

Called the 1871 Challenge in honor of the College’s founding year, the initiative aims to bring in 1,871 gifts between June 16 and June 30. A group of generous donors has pledged to contribute an additional $50,000 in scholarship support when the College achieves this goal.

Every gift, of any size, counts toward the challenge.

“The 1871 Challenge is an excellent opportunity for our alumni and friends to come together and show their support for Elmhurst College,” said Joseph Emmick, vice president of development and alumni affairs. “With their help, we can reach this goal and provide the best Elmhurst Experience for current and future students!”

Scholarships are vitally important to Elmhurst College students. Without the generous support of donors, many students simply would not be able to afford the Elmhurst Experience.

To increase your impact, please make your gift between June 16 and June 30, 2014. You can make your gift online or by calling (866) 794-1075.

You can also spread the word through Facebook, Twitter and other social networks. Tell your friends you’ve made a gift, and encourage them to give to the #1871Challenge too.
