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 2014 co-chairs

Shaun-Holtgreive--Campus-Life.jpgI am honored to be serving as a co-chair for the 2014 Annual University Campaign.  As a graduate of CMU and father who has had three daughters attend CMU I know first-hand the many wonderful opportunities that are made available to students through your generosity.  Scholarships and other types of assistance allow students to have access to higher education that they otherwise may not have.  Additionally, through your giving, not only are we able to provide excellent academic opportunities but we can also provide solid programming through the Leadership Institute and Mary Ellen Brandell Volunteer Center where students gain leadership skills and real life experiences.  I hope you will join me in making a difference in the lives of our students by making a contribution this year. ​

I am thrilled to be a co-chair of the Annual University Campaign.  This initiative is an outstanding resource for individuals to make a significant impact at Central Michigan University. The opportunity for students to participate in creative endeavors, research, volunteer organizations and scholarships is greatly enhanced by your generous contributions. As CMU continues to grow and evolve, the opportunity to support these changes can be, and is, very rewarding on a personal scale. 

 Every contribution makes a difference to the students and university culture. The impact your gift makes is enhanced further by the fact that CMU will match every donation by 50%! I encourage you to join me in supporting CMU by taking advantage of the opportunity to contribute to the Annual University Campaign.
