Thank you for going All In!

Drake University is where dreams ignite, paths are forged, and lives become forever changed. It’s an experience that lasts a lifetime and positively impacts the world we live in. This catalyst for world-changers, go-getters, and difference-makers is possible because our community shows up and goes all in.  

 

And it all starts with one: you.  

 

We surpassed our goal of 1,350 gifts in 24 hours to unlock an additional $65,000 for The Drake Fund, plus nearly $41,000 in matching funds for our colleges, schools, and units!

 

Thank you for sharing, celebrating, and supporting the University with us!
