Annual Giving and Unrestricted Support

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.

Yearly gifts represent a vital part of our upward trajectory. By designating your annual gift to one of our five priority areas, you support our campaign goals while helping us grow CNU’s annual fund.

In addition, major-gift, unrestricted support allows us to address areas of the greatest need, both now and for the future. Unrestricted support funds scholarships and provides emergency support to aid current students, among other initiatives.

Defining significance means being able to respond to opportunities and needs in the lives of our students. Regardless of how you choose to support CNU, gifts of all sizes and for all purposes will make a lasting difference on our campus and beyond.

CNU offers a variety of annual giving options to support specific programs and initiatives, including:
