About

WE BELIEVE IN OUR ROCKFORD PROMISE SCHOLARS AT RU.


Our goal is to have 400 donors join us in sharing their belief of these incredible students this Day of Giving.

Rockford University makes a profound difference in the lives of Rockford Promise scholars by supporting their dreams and graduating them in four years, tuition-free.


In Fall 2023, the number of Rockford Promise scholars choosing to study at RU, Rockford's local university, will TRIPLE and requires financial support.

Help us support Rockford Promise scholars at Rockford University this Day of Giving.

Are you interested in supporting another program or area of campus that is meaningful to you? All gifts are welcomed and appreciated, and make a difference for our students. Simply select from the list of designation options when making your gift. Thank you!

THANK YOU for an incredible Day of Giving!


We know that Rockford University students are amazing and that this campus is a great place. But, seeing so many from our community come together to share in this belief and the limitless potential of our Rockford Promise Scholars at Rockford University was truly remarkable.

We are excited to share that this Day of Giving TWO new records were set! Over $131,000 was raised from 408 donors, and gifts are still coming in. THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts for helping us support the talented and deserving students we show up to serve every day.

Final matching gifts announced to make it an all-around record-setting Day of Giving! Thank you!

WOW! We are so excited to share that due to the generous support of so many, we have officially set a new record of dollars raised for Day of Giving! We are SO close to hitting our donor goal of 400 with just 3 hours remaining. 

With less than 50 donors left to hit our donor goal, we hope you will help us push past the finish line to make it an all-around record-setting day!

We are grateful to members of our Alumni Association Board and Board of Trustees for their commitment to Day of Giving with 100% participation from all volunteers through the generous matches and challenges you've seen today. We hope you'll join them in showing your support if you haven't already!  

We look forward to sharing our final results tomorrow and thank you for the many ways you've made it a great day.
