Endowment

Throughout the past decade DePaul athletic fundraising has focused on endowing scholarships and other programs. Annually, athletics spends nearly $5 million on scholarship expenses for its more than 200 student-athletes. By endowing scholarships, DePaul athletics will have the opportunity to enhance scholarships in some sports and redistribute available funding to maximize the department's resources.

In the last 10 years through the generosity of donors, DePaul has gone from 12 endowed scholarships or funds to the current total of 47 endowed athletic funds. DePaul now has at least one named endowed scholarship for each of its sports offerings.

Leave a Legacy
A gift of $50,000 is needed to name a scholarship in your name or to honor someone of the donor's choosing.  That gift will live on, providing scholarship resources for student-athletes as well as strengthening  DePaul Athletics' financial future. All gifts can be made in pledges over five years. Planned gifts are encouraged.
