Your Impact

Private funding distinguishes a good university from an exceptional one — and we believe CNU is exceptional.

Every gift from every source for every purpose matters and makes an impact. Every gift – every donor – is significant. Your support provides financial resources to help CNU remain competitive, attract the brightest students and encourage the best teacher-scholars to join our ranks. It does so by providing much-needed revenue for the following:

  • Merit and need-based scholarships
  • Groundbreaking research
  • Critical technology upgrades
  • Facility enhancements

At the same time, your support affords us the opportunity to reach the highest levels of excellence in athletics, the performing arts, student clubs and organizations, academic centers, and so much more.

With the help of the entire CNU family across Virginia and around the world, our trajectory is limitless.

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