CBU Annual Fund
Christian Brothers University was founded in 1871 with an institutional mission to create an academic community that focused on identifying and developing the intellectual, spiritual and moral strengths of each individual student.
Support the Students of Tomorrow
From student scholarships and faculty development to state-of-the-art facilities and athletic equipment, the generosity of CBU’s supporters touches lives every single day. You can help make a CBU education affordable to students, help them realize their dreams and prepare them for rewarding careers and lives.
Your annual gift to the Fund for CBU supports our students and faculty. You have the option to designate your gift to the traditional Fund for CBU — where we’ll put it to use wherever the need is greatest — or to individual schools (Arts, Business, Engineering, and Sciences), a General Scholarship Fund. Whatever the designation, your gift makes a difference for CBU!
