Julie Tiede ’96 Winkler and Jason Winkler ’96 have generously committed $500,000 to fund endowed scholarships for Valpo College of Business and College of Engineering students.
The first year of Forever Valpo concluded with $157 million raised to date. Forever Valpo is a $250 million endowment campaign that will secure the University’s leadership position among faith-based colleges and universities.

Valpo Fund

Your support of Valpo’s annual funds made a significant impact in the success of the first year of Forever Valpo: The Campaign for Our Future.

Our fiscal year ended June 30, 2017, and we are excited to report that we surpassed our Valpo Fund dollar goal of $2,650,000, achieving $2,657,524. On our Day of Giving (May 4 and 5, 2017), more than 2,500 donors — 197 of whom made their first-ever gift to Valpo — raised more than $723,000 toward our annual funds (including the Valpo Fund, Dean’s Funds, Crusader Fund, and Guild Fund).

All annual fund gifts last year totaled $4.05M. $2.66M of that total went towards the Valpo Fund.

To our 5,570 alumni donors, we are forever grateful for your support of this special place we call home: Valparaiso University! We look forward to another tremendous fiscal year 2018 (July 1, 2017 — June 30, 2018).
