In honor of John Carroll University’s founding in 1886, we need the entire JCU community—current students, alumni, faculty, staff, and friends—to join together in support of current and future Blue Streaks! Beginning at 4:33 pm on April 29th, our challenge is to rally at least 250 donors to give by 11:59 pm on April 30, 2019.

The JCU Athletics Day of Giving challenge is a special part of JCU Day of Giving. Gifts to JCU Athletics Day of Giving will count towards the overall JCU Day of Giving total.
