2nd Annual Day of Giving - Give From Your Heart

Wednesday, April 18, 2018 (All day)

Dominican University is hosting its 2nd Annual Day of Giving on April 18. We invite you to give from your heart. Please make an $18 gift to the Annual Fund for Dominican.

You will virtually join fellow DU supporters to create a buzz about why annual contributions are essential to Dominican students. Your gift will inspire alumnae/i, friends, parents, faculty and staff to make a gift.

Your support provides the funds that write success stories for students, year after year… success stories that are constantly new, and yet familiar… the kind of success story you may have lived yourself. 

Our goal is to acquire 118 new donors on April 18! 


Below are quotes from Dominican alumnae/i - sharing why they proudly give from their heart:

"I give from my heart to Dominican because it gave more to me than I can ever pay back. Dominican grew me into the leader and the professional that I am today and I learned the value of truth and love. I am able to continue to live out Dominican’s mission every day in my life and that is all due to my years on campus. For that reason, and many others, I will continue to give each month."

- Mark Carbonara ’07 

"I give from my heart to Dominican because my experience at Rosary College is at the heart of who I am. I received a great preparation for further graduate study and I also got to see examples of strong female leadership at close hand. My work in the Housing Office and my extra-curricular involvement helped me develop skills that I use every day. A semester in London broadened my horizons. Throughout it all, classmates became friends with whom I am still in touch after almost 40 years."

- Hilary Ward Schnadt ’79 

"I give from the heart because the Dominican faculty gave me so much during my undergraduate years. The four years I spent on campus were vital in my development as a person who learned to think analytically, creatively and emphatically. By donating to DU, I am hoping to help other students have the same wonderful learning experience I had while an undergraduate." 

- Chris Lapetina Kukla ’72 

"I give from the heart because I believe that Dominican is providing its students with an incredible education, grounded in mission that enables them to go out in the world and make a difference. The sisters and lay faculty exemplify that mission and have always been role models for the students they teach and mentor. DU has a special place in my heart and it’s rewarding to be able to give back to a place that has so enriched my life."
