Advance our university. Improve our community. Change our world.

Give to DePauw

Since 1837, DePauw has provided an education that has transformed generations of students by advancing new ideas and leading change. Help drive our commitment to academic innovation, relevance and impact in our communities and world.

Make your Gift


  • Giving makes education possible for hundreds of students who would otherwise be unable to afford it. The knowledge and skills those students could gain will not only empower their lives, but also transform the lives of those in their community.
  • Our 10:1 student-to-faculty ratio allows us to provide unrivaled mentorship opportunities but our dedication to a quality education is labor-intensive and the competition for top students is fierce. Financial gifts attract and support students of the highest caliber.
  • DePauw is a place where intellectual challenge and the life of the campus prepare students for a lifetime of leadership and achievement. Giving empowers these leaders with a competitive breadth and depth of opportunities during their four years on campus.

Students are drawn to DePauw by the challenging and transformative education they receive. We need to ensure that our university can continue providing the next generation with the same opportunities that have made so many of our alumni and current students so successful.  The Campaign for DePauw is about strengthening our university and helping us continue to distinguish ourselves as a leading liberal arts institution.

Advance the Campaign 


Every gift made to DePauw has an impact on the quality education and social experience of our students to help them achieve lifelong success. Our recognition societies and programs exist to acknowledge the support of our generous donors who include DePauw in their philanthropic endeavors year after year.
