1,798 Minutes to Make an Impact
A 30-HOUR CAMPAIGN BEGINNING AT 6:02 PM ON TUESDAY, OCT. 19

Support from our Cardinal Community is critical to the University of Louisville mission. When we come together to share our pride in UofL through gifts from the heart and personal philanthropy, nothing is out of our reach. Our annual day of giving, Raise Some L, is an opportunity for us to soar to the top. 

Together, for 1,798 minutes, we will Support. Share. Soar! 

Beginning at 6:02 p.m. on Oct. 19, Cardinals everywhere will come together to celebrate who we are and Raise Some L. This is a Cardinal call to action to all students, alumni, faculty, staff, and fans to do three simple things:

Show your support - Make a gift

Share our cause - Spread the word, #RaiseSomeL

Soar even higher - Pursue our goals like never before! 

It’s that simple.

The time is now. Let's #RaiseSomeL!

Ground-breaking COVID-19 Research
Oct 20, 2021

When the COVID-19 virus arrived in the Louisville community, there were very limited tools to quickly track and predict the spread of the virus within the city. The Co-Immunity Project was born out of this need with philanthropic support of donors like you and the expertise of world-class researchers at the University of Louisville. 

This ground-breaking project and it's findings are now shaping national and international conversations on how to better track and predict the spread of pathogens. This project truly shows that UofL is dynamically connected to both the local and global community in a powerful way. 

Consider supporting this work so this project can grow and continue to provide the data we need to address the challenges of today, tomorrow and beyond.

Madeline has an incredible story!
Oct 20, 2021

"I wanted to be part of a program that considered everyone's social justice as equal." —Madeline Martinez, UofL Martin Luther King Scholar

Madeline has an incredible story. She came to UofL because earning a degree was her way to honor the sacrifices her mother had made to raise her, and she saw UofL as a pathway to change for others from a similar background. The MLK Scholars program is filled with students like Madeline, who have the ideas, vision, and personal character to carry Dr. Martin Luther King's legacy forward.  

Help invest in students like Madeline who are the future leaders of the country. 


Help us turn the nation Cardinal red!
