1,798 Minutes to Make an Impact

A lot has changed in 200 years—our commitment hasn't. Since 1798, the Cardinal family has dreamed big, worked hard and made a lasting impact on our community, commonwealth, and beyond.

Beginning at 6:02 p.m. on Oct. 23, for 1,798 minutes, 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 two simple things:

  1. Make a gift
  2. Spread the word - #RaiseSomeL

It’s that simple.

Our time is now. Let's roll up our sleeves and get to work building our future – together. Let’s #RaiseSomeL!

We're LIVE with the Cardinal Marching Band!
Oct 24, 2018

We’re LIVE with the University of Louisville Cardinal Marching Band to talk to Spencer, head drum major, and Steffany, feature twirler, about how #RaiseSomeL donations impact the Marching Cards. If we’re lucky, we might even get a sneak preview of some things they’ve been working on! Visit RaiseSomeL.org before 11:59 p.m. to lock in your support!

We're live at Wear Red to be Fed!
Oct 24, 2018

Recorded live from the Red Barn, we joined in on the homecoming festivities at Wear Red to be Fed where the Student Activities Board is raising money for day of giving by taking donations to throw a pie in a fellow student's face. The drum line also performed along with the Dazzling Cardettes.

Help us turn the nation Cardinal red!
