2020 Alverno Giving Challenge: Support Our Student Relief Efforts

Alverno community, you have been so generous during our annual Alverno Giving Challenge, thank you!

We have received an additional $10,000 matching gift to support Alverno, so we're keeping our challenge open through Tuesday, May 5.

In light of COVID-19, Alverno College needs your support during the Alverno Giving Challenge this year more than ever.  

Many alums and friends of the college have asked how they can help, and we are so appreciative. A number of alumnae have stepped forward with a $1 for $1 matching gift through April 30.

Many of our students have lost jobs or are facing potential unemployment. Some may also have challenges covering childcare and technology costs for online learning. More than 220 students are currently unable to pay their remaining tuition for this semester.

Here’s how you can help right now:

  • Support Alverno’s most critical and urgent needs
  • Donate to the Alverno Strong Bridge Fund to provide tuition assistance
  • Make a monetary gift to the Alverno Food Pantry

Your gift can be made in honor of a healthcare worker, a teacher or any Alverno Strong alum, whose names we will highlight online.

We understand this is a challenging time. But, if you are able please donate by April 30 and have your gift matched $1 for $1.

Thank you for your support. Together, we WILL stay Alverno Strong!

Please share this effort to help Alverno students using the social media links under the video at the top of this page.
