Lilly Endowment Will Match Gifts to DePauw Through End of This Month
June 26, 2006
June 26, 2006, Greencastle, Ind. - The end of the University’s fiscal year is fast approaching on June 30, so there is limited time to provide support for DePauw students and faculty members through the 2005-06 DePauw Annual Fund. This year it is especially important for alumni to fulfill intents or make new gifts prior to June 30 in order to qualify for matching dollars from Lilly Endowment.
DePauw needs 274 additional alumni to fulfill intents or make new gifts in order to increase alumni participation in the Annual Fund to 37 percent. To date, 9,041 alumni have made gifts, while another 910 have pledged their support.
Through the Loyalty and Leadership Challenge made possible by Lilly Endowment, alumni and friends who provide increased support over the amount of their 2004-05 gift will receive a 2:1 match for the amount of the increase. They will receive a 3:1 match for the amount of the increase if they make a two-year commitment.
The challenge also encourages new gifts to the Annual Fund. If alumni and friends who did not provide support during the 2004-05 year opt to make a gift prior to June 30, 2006, they will receive a 2:1 match for their entire gift or a $100 match, whichever is larger.
The Annual Fund helps to support today's DePauw students and faculty members. You may target your gift to:
- Student scholarships
- Faculty support
- Winter Term and off-campus study
- Creative and performing arts
- Technology and library support
- Unrestricted support
