University Advancement

The pleasure you take in helping others . . .
If anything surpasses the pleasure of giving, it is knowing how much your gift helps others.

Your gift to Catholic University . . .
  • Gives a student the financial aid that makes a successful future possible.

  • Lifts up a struggling person. Our students deliver food to the homeless, serve in soup kitchens and shelters, and travel on international mission trips during spring break and summer.

  • Puts a professor in the classroom who changes a student’s life forever.

The pleasure of your giving?
Knowing the difference you made to students who go on to make a difference in the world.

With your help, The Catholic University of America produces a special kind of graduate.

Your gifts touch students’ lives immediately, directly. They support the Catholic intellectual tradition that instills in our students the values and abilities to become business owners, doctors, engineers, artists, attorneys, teachers, and nurses, who bring something different to life.

Through your faith and commitment, countless students are able to experience the living and learning environment unique to Catholic University.

Whether you are an alumnus who wants to close the circle by assisting a student as you were assisted or a parent who appreciates that your son or daughter is receiving so much more than tuition can provide, you can close the circle of caring.

Our new Giving Circles includes those who are “closing the circle,” an ongoing cycle of support for young people excited about the future that lies before them.
