Annual University Campaign

A Message to the CMU Community

Why is it important to give to the Annual University Campaign? Here is some insight from our 2015 co-chairs

I am honored to co-chair the 2015 CMU Annual Campus Campaign. This is my twentieth year of service at CMU and I count every one of those years a privilege and an honor to serve this great University.  As a former student, alumni, and now as a professor I have experienced the camaraderie of the CMU community and its longstanding tradition of giving back. Campus Campaign is an opportunity for you to empower your gift to the university by reallocating funds to a CMU cause that is important to you. During Campus Campaign CMU will match your gift with an additional 50%. So, I encourage you to choose a scholarship, sport, department, college, student group, building project or any cause on this campus that means something to you and to make a gift during the campaign. Fire Up Chips!

As a proud CMU graduate, I had the opportunity to take full advantage of all that CMU has to offer students to succeed both in and out of the classroom. By contributing to the Annual University Campaign, we can ensure that students continue to learn and grow through research, creative endeavors, co-curricular experiences, leadership development and numerous other experiences. Not only do your generous contributions support the mission of the university, but you can specifically designate your gifts to those programs or areas for which you may be most passionate. Every contribution makes a difference in the lives of our students and I hope you'll join me in donating this year.
