Welcome to the Parents and Families Challenge in Dolphin Dash! This week, parents and families (and students!) will make gifts in support of their student's class year. The class year that raises the most in donations will win a drive-in movie experience! Make a gift, then ask your friends and family to donate. In this challenge, every gift matters. 

Donations support the JU Parents Fund covering everything from scholarships to student health and wellness initiatives. Your gift will enhance student life today and pave the way for the next generation to come.

The Results Are In!

The results are in! In just five days, 6,398 alumni, students, families, friends, and fans from all over the world came together in record numbers to raise $2.4M during Dolphin Dash, and fuel progress that will make an immediate impact on Jacksonville University.

Over 50 members of the PhinFam helped us raise $42,680 for the JU Parent's Fund during a historic week of giving. Thank you for giving forward and congratulations to the freshman Class of 2024 who will receive an exclusive drive-in movie experience this spring!

Dolphin Dash supercharges dollars into change and drives students to power forward and inspire innovation. Thank you for your unparalleled support.
