Give to CMU

Your Gift Makes a Difference

Did you know tuition dollars cover only about two-thirds of a CMU education? And that more than 50% of CMU students receive critical financial aid?

But thanks to the support of thousands who give each year, at all levels, the university is able to bridge the gap for many students and provide critical financial aid.

During our 2011 fiscal year (July 1, 2010 – June 30, 2011), more than 19,000 alumni, students, parents, faculty, staff and friends gave back and made a real difference. Generous gifts from last year resulted in:

  • Nearly $23 million being raised for scholarships, fellowships and student programs
  • $32 million raised to support our award-winning faculty and pioneering research
  • An increase in our alumni giving rate to 19.3% (from 16.8% in fiscal year 2010)—an important factor in CMU's high ranking in U.S. News & World Report and other leading publications
These accomplishments—and so many others—would not be possible without your support.

Thank you!
