Drake University All In 2021
For This Moment. For a Lifetime.

Drake is a University for this moment and a Drake education is for a lifetime. 

And April 8-9 from noon to noon is YOUR moment to support the problem-solving, path-forging, future-building, life-changing programs and people at Drake through the All In 24-Hour Giving Challenge.

Gifts made during All In will have an increased impact, thanks to matching challenges that push your donations go further. 

For its entire 140-year history and through this past year of change and challenge, Drake University has risen to the moment and Drake students have built an educational foundation for a lifetime. This academic excellence and enduring capacity to strengthen our community is empowered by enthusiastic support from Drake community members like you.

During All In you can support Drake’s greatest overall needs, seven colleges and schools, 18 athletics teams, and an array of programs and centers that create the community impact and educational experience that will improve our society and carry students through a lifetime.
