Your remarkable generosity led to an all-time high in our number of donors with 4,503! Each one of you helped contribute to student scholarships, exciting academic enrichment, bolstering athletic programs, and enhancing the Central educational experience. Thanks to you, Central continues to be among the premier public colleges and universities in the country.
In 2014-2015, donors contributed more than $3.1 million to the university. The university was able to award over $1,000,000 in scholarships (30% increase) to 547 students (21% increase). We also had one of our most successful initiatives with the Devil Double Dare. During the week-long challenge last May over $92,000 was donated by alumni, friends, parents, faculty and staff resulting in over $185,000 for the university thanks to the generous match provided by the Alumni Association. The endowment also saw growth. Now at $63,000,000 the endowment has grown 4 percent since last year.
Your gifts make a difference in the lives of our students and the life of the University. We are deeply grateful for each gift.
This Honor Roll recognizes gifts made to the CCSU Foundation, Inc. between July 1, 2014 and June 30, 2015.
