Chicago Noble Campaign

Chicago Alumni Supporting Chicago Students

Since our founding in 1871, Christian Brothers College and, later, University, has maintained close ties to the city from which many of our Brothers came. Throughout our history, secondary schools in Chicago have shepherded young men and women to Memphis to study with the de La Salle Christian Brothers. That tradition continues as we work to pave the way for today’s Windy City students to pursue their dreams of higher education at CBU.  Now, you have the opportunity to help! 


The Students:

The Noble Network of schools shares CBU’s commitment to educating high potential students who might fall through the cracks of the traditional education system.  The Noble Schools prepare low-income students with the scholarship, discipline, and honor necessary to succeed in college and lead exemplary lives.  Noble currently manages 17 schools serving over 11,000 students from more than 70 Chicago communities. With an average merit scholarship of $11,000, full Pell Grants and loans, Noble students hoping to attend CBU are still faced with out of pocket expenses for tuition and housing exceeding $15,000.  

The Challenge: 

This Challenge aims to bridge the financial gap for Noble Network graduates, making their dreams of a CBU education possible. Generous Alumni have challenged fellow Chicago-area Bucs to reach $60,000 in gifts by May 31, 2016.  The donors will match your gifts, dollar for dollar, up to $20,000.  Join this effort to make a difference in the lives of Chicago students.  Give today.    

Every Gift Makes A Difference!
