The world needs the kind of leaders that Valpo is uniquely able to develop, good people doing great things in a world that needs them. For those future leaders, the Valpo Fund is the lifeblood fund for the University. The Valpo Fund is a large unrestricted fund that allows the University to respond quickly to high-priority needs, and every gift to the Valpo Fund supports Forever Valpo: The Campaign for Our Future. A significant number of Valpo Fund gifts go directly to students in the form of scholarships, so every gift to the Valpo Fund gives students more opportunities.

All Valpo students, faculty, and programs benefit from your support of the Valpo Fund. When you make a gift, you invest in Valpo’s purpose and vision, and supporting the Valpo Fund helps sustain five key areas of the Valpo experience:
Student Scholarships
Allows Valpo to attract the highest-quality students.
Academic Excellence
Provides high-performing students the opportunity to participate in research and fieldwork alongside world-class faculty and other innovative classroom experiences.

Lutheran Ministry
Sustains our Lutheran heritage by supporting programs encouraging servant leadership in the Lutheran tradition, preserving sacred space, funding retreats, and helping graduates pursue their vocation.
Student Experience
Supports programs and opportunities on campus and across the globe that help create each student’s unique Valpo story.
Strategic Priorities
Allows Valpo to seize innovative opportunities and respond to campus needs as they emerge.
