Matching Gift: Lucky Charm Challenge

Support CEU – and double your impact – via the Lucky Charm Challenge!

It’s been a critical year, but there’s never been a better time to support CEU. BETTER YET: thanks to a generous gift from alumnus Konstantin Kurganov (LEGS ’94, Ukraine), from now until Dec. 31 every gift, up to $50,000 will be matched, dollar for dollar, making it go twice as far!

That means every dollar you give will be doubled, maximizing your support of talented CEU students and award-winning academia. That’s a fantastic value. But there’s more: When donating, share your New Year’s wish to win great prizes! Here’s how:

1. GIVE (It’s quick, easy and effective) 
Choose your fund (scholarships, departments, campus or unrestricted) and we’ll double your amount. All gifts are welcome, none are too small – or too big! Make your gift here, or below.

2. MAKE A WISH
When donating write your gift in the comment box – it can be about anything! When wishing, visualize CEU’s lucky charm (pictured).

3. ENTER TO WIN
We’ll feature every wish on the main alumni Facebook group. The one with the most likes wins TWO tickets to the 2018 Alumni Reunion in Budapest.

Make your gift, and see who already has (below). But hurry - this offer ends the minute 2017 does. 

Or, if you prefer, use PayPal (below)
