Why Give

Because DePauw’s winning combination of intellectual challenge and social engagement prepared you for success. Because you want to give the next generation of students the same opportunity. Because you love DePauw.

A DePauw education has never been more relevant, but a private liberal arts education is an expensive endeavor. 

As a residential college with a 10:1 student-to-faculty ratio, a DePauw education is labor-intensive.  At the same time, the competitive market for the most talented students is fierce.  More and more families are feeling real economic pains as our national economy progresses through this cycle of contraction.  Financial access, therefore, to a DePauw education must remain as open and available as possible.
