UD's Cor Challenge

Participate. Give. Support UD.
May 8 - 10, 2014

Cor Challenge Participants: 721

Total Given: $77,985.75

Cor Challenge returns for the third year. Meet the challengers and participate in this 58th year of the University of Dallas.

Why do you give? 

Do you still use your education? Do you find that you are better prepared for your vocation because of a professor, a class, or program at the University of Dallas? Did you meet your soul-mate while studying at the Cap Bar? Do you attend alumni events? Whatever your reason and whether you give $5.80 or $5,800, every gift counts because each supports the Cor Fund and increases our alumni participation rate.

What is an alumni participation rate and why does it matter?

The alumni participation rate is the percentage of alumni that give. This figure is a factor in academic rankings and the decision-making process of most philanthropic foundations and other prospective donors. See how the participation rates were affected by this event last year.

Participate by giving to UD during the Cor Challenge from May 8-10, 2014.

Secure online giving is easy at udallas.edu/donate or follow the excitement with #corchallenge.

Our Goal: $75,000

Did you know that UD's alumni community is 30,000 members strong? If every person gave $2.50, the university would have enough to cover the tuition and room of two undergraduates. If 1,250 alumni made a gift of $5 a month for a year ($60 in total), the university would be able to cover the matriculation fee for nearly 500 new MBA/MS students. The possibilities are endless. We have no doubt the alumni community is capable of coming together, turning what are small gifts into an overwhelming show of support.

Here's what you can do:

  • Make your own gift online during the Cor Challenge and challenge others to give with you.
  • Learn about what the Cor Fund supports.
  • Elevate the conversation about giving. What is your reason for making a gift? Ask your peers about their's.
