2019 End of Year Challenge Biggest In Years

Goal exceeded!

CEU alumni raised more than $107,000 - $7,000 beyond the original target – in support of student scholarships as part of the #ThankYouCEU 2019 Alumni Challenge.

In less than a month, from December 4 to 31, nearly 300 alumni donors gave to the end-of-year funding drive, including 67 to who gave to the university for the first time.

The number of donors, the amount raised, and the short duration makes this the most successful end-of-year alumni campaign in recent CEU history. (Last year’s challenge included 250 donors who raised $87,000.)
