Alumni Giving

Why should you give back to CBU?

There are three key reasons why alumni giving percentage matters to CBU and why you, as an alum, may want to consider an annual gift to the University.

First is that the alumni giving percentage is a “vote of support” in one’s alma mater. U.S. News & World Report's "America's Best Colleges" tracks the percentage and uses it as part of the calculation for its rankings. CBU currently ranks 24th among Southern colleges and universities, in part, because of our alumni giving percentage.

Second, alumni participation matters to many foundations and major donors. If the alumni support the school, then it sends a message that it is a place worthy of further investment with their major gifts.

Third, giving back as one is able shows a spirit of gratitude and thankfulness to the University and to the Christian Brothers, keeping it strong for the next generation.

To show fellow alumni that you support CBU, visit our online giving page or call (800) 283-2925.
