When is the Duquesne Day of Giving?
Thursday, February 8, 2018.
What is the Duquesne Day of Giving?
The Duquesne Day of Giving calls all Duquesne University alumni, faculty, staff, students and friends from around the world to make an online donation to Duquesne University and spread the word about the day via social media.
How will my donation be used?
You decide! Your gift may be unrestricted, providing the University with financial flexibility and stability to address areas of greatest need, or you may designate your gift to the Duquesne school, organization or program that means the most to you. Whatever you choose, your gift will have an impact on our students.
I can't afford to make a large gift. Will my donation really make a difference?
Yes! Even a gift of $10 will make a difference. In addition, every gift improves Duquesne's donor participation rate, which in turn raises Duquesne's profile in national rankings and increases the value of a Duquesne degree.
