2016 Numbers to Beat...1,023 Gifts; $109,122.00 Raised

It's the second annual Duquesne Day of Giving! Our virtual fundraising event where we ask YOU our alumni, faculty, staff, parents and friends to make an online donation to Duquesne University. You can make an unrestricted gift to support our areas of greatest need or designate your gift to the school, organization or sports team that means the most to you. Even $10 will make a difference! To help break last year's Duquesne Day of Giving historic records, consider increasing your gift by $5 or make multiple gifts to support numerous areas of campus!

Choose a giving level


Makes A Difference!

We learned last year that all of those $10 donations really add up to make an impact! Every gift improves Duquesne's donor participation rate, which in turn raises Duquesne's profile in national rankings and increases the value of a Duquesne degree.


Honor the Class of 2017

Make a gift in honor of the Class of 2017


Every Gift Counts

A $100 annual gift contributes as much to Duquesne's budget as a $2,000 endowment.


Our Legacy

Make a gift in honor of Duquesne University being 138-years-old.


Your Donation...Your Decision!

Don't forget that your gift can be unrestricted to support Duquesne's greatest needs or to the school, organization, program or sports team that means the most to you.


Duquesne Society

A gift of $1,000 or more includes membership to the Duquesne Society! Members are invited to an annual spring evening of recognition on campus and receive benefits including periodic invitations to regional networking, social and cultural events.


Make A Statement

Those contributing $2,500 or more not only become Duquesne Society members but receive additional benefits commensurate with their increased giving levels.
