Annual gifts are the foundation of support for the university. An annual gift of $1,000 provides about the same benefit to a CMU student as that of the annual earnings on a $25,000 endowed gift. Your support of CMU is touching the lives of students every day.
If you are an alumnus, a parent or a friend, you will likely be contacted by a student caller or receive a pledge reminder requesting an annual gift. This gift keeps you connected with CMU and gives us an opportunity to chat with you and update your information.
More than 90 percent of new CMU students depend on some form of financial aid. Many qualify for federal, state or institutional aid. Even those who qualify for other types of financial aid may still have substantial unmet need. The Maverick Fund is here to support students whose need is urgent.
A gift to the Maverick Fund allows the university the greatest flexibility to help students in need with housing, books, fees and even emergencies. A gift to the Maverick Fund is a gift that keeps students enrolled and on track for graduation.

Buy a Brick
Alumni and friends may also buy a brick to support CMU. Your brick will be inscribed with your name, a short message, and will be added to a new walkway near the University Center.
