Why is annual giving important at
Christopher Newport University?

Annual gifts from alumni, parents, grandparents, students, faculty, staff and friends are a vital source of revenue. Annual gifts, which are received and spent in the same year, have an immediate impact on the things that makes CNU special – scholarships, great teaching and faculty excellence, world-class facilities and technology, and unique programs such as the President Leadership Program, Honors Program, study abroad, undergraduate research and internships.

When you ask people to give you their very best,
they will astound you with their success
