Bring IU the Luck of the Irish!

St. Patrick's Day often brings tales of leprechauns, pots of gold and luck. Immaculata University is very lucky in that our pot of gold extends to more than 99% of our traditional undergraduate students, who receive financial aid and scholarships each year. The ability to provide an affordable, outcome-oriented education at all levels (graduate, too) is a direct result of our generous donors, who replenish the IU "pot of gold" each year.

If you have not already done so, please consider sharing a wee bit of your "gold" with Immaculata students this St. Patrick's Day, by clicking the pot of gold, above, to make an online donation. Your gift of any size will help Immaculata University reach this year's $1.125 million goal!

Where Do You Volunteer:

Alumni Board Service Challenge

Our experience at Immaculata not only provided us with an excellent education, but we were also encouraged and supported the mission of service to give back to our communities. Continuing with this great tradition, we challenge our alumni to celebrate their service by sharing what they are doing for others. We invite alums to take a photo or provide a brief description of service they have done or are currently doing and send it to AlumniDept@immaculata.edu or post it on social media using the hashtag #iuservicechallenge. Photos and stories received by April 1, 2024 will be featured at Reunion 2024 on April 27, 2024.

Every Immaculatan can make a difference and together we can make a mighty difference!
