Crowdfunding at Valpo

Hurricane Harvey Service Trips

Students will spend 3,600 hours cleaning and repairing homes devastated by Hurricane Harvey. Funds will be used to supply the necessary safety equipment while students realize the magnitude of human and social issues caused by Harvey.

Storm Intercept Field Study Equipment

A 25-year tradition, students learn first-hand the importance of communication and team work. Funds raised will be used to replace equipment dating back to 2008 allowing for better coordination between radar data, weather models, and navigation software.

WAVES Project Bright Future

Continuing  the work of 10 previous trips to an orphanage in Haiti, Valpo students aim to install a complete solar powered renewable energy training system. Funds raised will cover the equipment and training costs for students to learn and serve.

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).
