The Duquesne University Greek Week Crowdfunding Challenge is a 30-day online fundraising campaign where we are asking all Greek alumni and friends to make a gift to support the students of their favorite Greek organization. Donations will be placed in that organization's Greek Life Impact Fund, which directly benefits current Duquesne University students in that organization.
How do I make a gift?
Simply click on the organization you would like to make a donation to and hit the “Give Now” button on that organization's page. You will then be prompted to fill out our brief online giving form and then to a second page where you can donate online with your credit card via our secure server.

What if I already make a gift to a Duquesne University Greek Life Impact Fund this calendar year?
If you have already donated to a Duquesne University Greek Life Impact Fund this calendar year then we have added that donation to your organization's Donor Wall. If you made a gift this calendar year but your name is not on the Donor Wall please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you already made a non-Greek gift to Duquesne University this calendar year, please consider making a second donation that supports your Greek Life organization. Even $10 makes a difference!
