* When donating via bank transfer or check, please include your name and your gift designation (scholarships, campus redevelopment, etc.). CEU ARCS would like to honor both the amount and intent of your gift, and the inclusion of your name and gift designation will facilitate our recognition process.

Note: Most banks charge a wire transfer fee and the amount received and credited as a gift to CEU will be net of these fees. Due to transaction procedures, you will receive confirmation from CEU one month after your transfer was completed.


If you prefer to make your donation in cash, you can in person at the ARCS office weekdays, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Gifts can be made in HUF, USD or EUR. You can also make your contribution at any formal or informal CEU alumni reunion or event, anywhere in the world. Your local CEU alumni chapter leader, or representatives of the CEU Alumni Association, are authorized to collect gifts and issue official donation receipts for CEU. Find your local chapter representatives.


Many organizations and companies match their employees’ charitable gifts, often dollar for dollar. To maximize the impact of your gift, please check with your organization’s human resources or payroll department regarding its matching gift program.

legal note

CEU is a 501(c)(3) public charity in the U.S. and on the Canadian list of prescribed universities, thus donations to CEU from U.S. and Canadian taxpayers are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. See details.
