Ways to Support Elmhurst

Bluejays Helping Bluejays

As an Elmhurst grad, you know how Elmhurst can transform someone’s life. The qualities that led you to the Gates are what tie you to thousands of your fellow alumni.

Our network is a growing, and generous, link to the next generation of thinkers and leaders. You can support Elmhurst through gifts, volunteering, or both. How will you make an impact?

Many Elmhurst supporters have recently asked how they can support students during the uncertainty caused by the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). The Bluejay Nest Fund provides support for food, books, travel and other unexpected needs that may arise. Should you wish to give to this fund, it can be found on our giving page in the “Area of Support” drop-down menu.

Why Give?

  • Equality: We believe that every qualified student should be able to pursue an Elmhurst University degree. Your gift allows us to open our doors to deserving students from every background.
  • Empowerment: Our graduates practice our values: achievement, meaning and service. Elmhurst’s rigorous academic experience and career preparation shape tomorrow’s future leaders.
  • Excellence: Support from alumni like you funds our innovative programs, professorships, facilities and research.
