Philanthropy Week Returns in November

This university was founded on the principle of making the world a better place by paying it forward.

And next month, we’re celebrating how we’ve benefited – and how to give back – during CEU’s second annual Philanthropy Week.

From November 26 to 30 we’ll be hosting events on campus and around the world for alumni and students focused on the power of philanthropy, including:

Donor Societies Mark Third Anniversary

September 28, 2018

Over the years a small cadre of alumni have distinguished themselves by their generous or consistent philanthropic support of CEU.

And now, we're celebrating them. 

This September marks the third anniversary of CEU’s Milestone and Loyalty societies, which recognize those alumni making substantial or consecutive gifts, respectively, to the CEU Alumni Campaign.

The Milestone Society includes alumni who have made gifts to CEU totaling $2,000 or more. The Loyalty Society includes those who have given, in any amount, for three consecutive years or more.

Challenge Accepted: “Lucky Charm” Tradition Takes Root

September 17, 2018

For the second year in a row, new students have trekked to the CEU rooftop to wish for good fortune on CEU’s own “lucky charm.”

And for one group of students, it paid off.

Last Friday students from the MESPOM program (pictured) won the university’s second annual Lucky Charm Challenge – and scored some cool CEU-branded gear from the Alumni Relations office.

The charm is a bronze orb embedded in the rooftop Kharkiv Terrace, honoring CEU alumnus and benefactor Konstantin Kurganov (LEGS ’94) and designed by his daughter Olesia.
