Giving to CEU
The tradition of philanthropy at Central European University began with its founding in 1991. Its momentum is building today, as CEU enters its third decade. The generous support from corporations, foundations and trusts, and from alumni and friends of CEU is helping us to ensure that students can learn in an environment that will foster their growth as global leaders and in the service of open societies.
Gifts to CEU allow us to remain flexible in meeting current needs, while allowing the University to retain a high rate of tuition support. Charitable giving also allows the endowment—a precious resource for the future—to compound at a higher rate. Undesignated and designated endowment gifts ensure that CEU will continue to provide the highest quality graduate education for outstanding students from around the world.
Thank you for your support.
