Drake University All In 2020
Taking a Pause For Our Community
2 days ago

At Drake, we are committed to equity and inclusion on our campus and in our communities. This is a painful and challenging time, and our priority is on helping support students, faculty, staff, and all who are part of the Drake family.

 

For that reason, we are putting the All In 24 Hour Giving Challenge on hold. We are so grateful for your sustaining generosity. Thank you for your steadfast support of our students and the entire Drake community during challenging and uncertain circumstances.  

 

We look forward to celebrating All In with you when the time is right; for now, we encourage you to take care of yourself and those around you. We are all in this together.

 

 

All In 2020 is Less Than A Month Away!
May 11, 2020

Bulldogs! We are so excited that All In 2020 is less than a month away! We look forward to showing off our Bulldog pride and showing our support for Drake on June 4-5, noon to noon.

 

There will be fun online content to share as well as opportunities to support Drake and have your donation go further through matching gift challenges. Gifts support the six colleges and schools, 16 athletics teams, 160+ student organizations, and a robust roster of programs that are a testament to the University’s history of excellence and a mark of its bright future.

 

Be sure to follow Drake University Alumni on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for all the excitement.
