Annual Fund

By generously supporting CU with undesignated gifts through our Annual Fund, you help bridge the financial difference between affordable tuition for students and the actual cost of providing an excellent education. 96% of our students receive some form of financial assistance and each year the university provides 1.2 million dollars in scholarship funding to enable students to graduate without the lasting negative effects of student debt. On behalf of the CU family of administration, faculty, staff and students, we thank you for your generous support.

Vision 2020 Fund

Matching Gifts

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions or volunteer hours made by their employees which allows you to double your gift.

You can donate appreciated stocks, mutual funds, ETFs, index funds, and more to Carolina University.
