Giving Students Something More

Every donor, every gift, every year - enhances every aspect of the Duquesne experience. Make a difference with your gift to The Duquesne Fund.

A Duquesne education offers a distinctive blend of academics that challenge, values that guide, a location that inspires and an experience that defines.

It takes more than tuition to make this possible. Every student, even those not receiving direct aid, benefits from donor support.

It takes more than a strong and growing endowment. Investment returns account for only a small percentage of Duquesne's annual budget, and they're restricted to use for designated purposes.

It takes more than prudent management that makes Duquesne one of the "Best Value" Schools, lauded by U.S. News & World Report.

Sustaining and improving our holistic education for the mind, heart and spirit requires consistent annual support - gifts of all sizes, from thousands of alumni and friends - with a powerful cumulative effect.

Duquesne Fund gifts may be unrestricted, providing the University with the flexibility to address areas of greatest need, or you may direct your gift to an area of Duquesne that is meaningful to you. Whatever you choose, your gift goes to work right away to benefit students.

Gifts of every size make a big difference.

Not only does each gift support our mission to serve God by serving students, but it also enhances Duquesne's reputation locally and globally:

  • Alumni donor participation is a factor that publications use in calculating national rankings. Every gift helps to maintain and improve Duquesne's placement among the top national doctoral institutions.
  • Financial rating agencies consider alumni participation in their evaluations, affecting the interest paid when Duquesne borrows for major projects.
  • High participation rates build confidence among corporations, foundations and major individual donors in deciding where to invest their resources.

The Duquesne Fund makes the difference - every day, everywhere, for everyone across the Bluff. Give our students something more. Make your gift to The Duquesne Fund today!
