Elmhurst Announces Giving Challenge

December 4, 2014 | by the Office of Communications and Public Affairs

Now through the end of the year, donors to the Elmhurst College annual fund can double the impact of their charitable giving to the College.

That’s because a group of generous Elmhurst College trustees has committed to matching every gift made to the College’s annual fund by December 31, up to $50,000.

The annual fund plays a critical role in supporting the Elmhurst Experience through scholarships, infrastructure improvements and a lot more. For many students, an Elmhurst education would not be possible without the financial assistance that the annual fund provides; for many others, scholarship support eases the financial burden.

“A gift to Elmhurst College represents an excellent investment in the future of our students and our world. Elmhurst gives students the tools they need to launch rewarding careers and to make a difference,” said Joseph Emmick, vice president of development and alumni affairs.

“And this year, each gift will make even more of an impact, thanks to our challenge donors. Every gift made by December 31 will double in value and help us continue to provide a transformational experience for our students.”

To double your impact, please make your gift before December 31, 2014. You can make your gift online or by calling us at (866) 794-1075. Every gift makes a difference, and every gift is deeply appreciated.
