Dear Faculty, Staff, and Students,

Yesterday, more than 4,600 Blue Demons from around the world came together to raise $5,300,000 within 24 hours for our students at DePaul University. The generosity displayed by our DePaul community is incredible. 

Thank you to everyone – including our many faculty and staff – who went above and beyond to participate in the Blue Demon Challenge​. I am beyond grateful for the dedication demonstrated by our DePaul community to support the programs and students we care about so passionately. Every gift makes a difference by funding projects all over the university and providing resources to help our students reach their full potential.  

Thank you again to everyone who contributed, our generous challenge donors, and everyone who encouraged others to make a gift.


Robert L. Manuel
