Emory Day of Giving coming soon, March 22-23, 2023!
Emory Chicago Network

The Emory Chicago Network’s mission is to deliver valuable and relevant experiences to foster lifelong connections between and among Emory alumni in the Chicago area and Emory University.

The Emory Chicago Network has chosen to support several funds for this year’s 2036 Giving Week, from the 1915 Scholars Program for first generation college students to a veterans fund in honor of Veterans Day November 11th, among others. These groups are a sample of the broad and thriving student body at Emory.

For 2O36 Giving Week, we are focusing on these areas.

Your gift to the Women of Emory Impact Circle Fund will advance the causes of women and girls through the power of collective philanthropic giving. Funds are awarded each year to projects initiated by Emory students, staff, and faculty to transform the lives of women and girls at Emory and beyond.

The 1915 Scholars Program celebrates the heritage and ongoing journeys of students who are the first in their family to attend college by providing informational, academic, and social support through alumni and peer mentoring while encouraging and supporting students’ college aspirations.

The Emory Law Volunteer Clinic for Veterans provides pro bono legal services for low-income veterans, assisting them and their families with discharge upgrades, disability benefits claims, powers of attorney, wills, and advance directives for health care. Gifts support the outreach and advocacy work conducted by the staff, students, and volunteers of the clinic.

The BBA GoBeyond Fund provides support for BBA student experiences not covered by tuition so that all undergraduate students have an enriching educational experience and access to opportunities such as Career Treks, conferences, clothing for interviews, etc.

Your gift to the Emory Athletics Fund for Excellence helps support student athlete academic and professional success through Emory’s Eagle Edge program. Growing the Eagle Edge program will provide additional resources for career development, market readiness, and academic success
