Donation Goal
CMU's 129th Anniversary & Week of Giving
At Central Michigan University, We Do Opportunity. We Fire Up.

No gift is too small during CMU’s 129th Anniversary. Throughout this week, we’re asking for CMU alumni and friends to come together and make a gift to support CMU students.

It is now more important than ever to invest in the next generation. Thanks to generous donors in the CMU community, our Fire Up Challenges this year allow alumni and friends to give once and help twice. Join us in supporting CMU student success.

Support your favorite scholarship or department and show the world that CMU gives back!

No matter which fund you give to, here’s what happens once we reach:

•250 donors = $1,000 goes to support the CMU Student Food Pantry

•500 donors = $1,000 goes to support the Student Emergency Fund

•1,000 donors = $1,000 goes to support the Finish Up Chips Scholarship

•1,500 donors = $1,000 goes to support the Students First General Scholarship Fund

Matching funds are provided by the Alumni Association Gold Members.

Class Decade Challenges*

Your generous donation automatically counts toward our Class Decade Challenges based on your graduation year. For each challenge, there are two ways to win: 1) The class decade(s) that raises the most dollars and 2) the class decade(s) that has the most donors will be rewarded $2,500 to give to the CMU fund of that class group’s choice. A total of $5,000 will be rewarded to each challenge pairing, but only you can help determine if your class decade gets bragging rights!

*Gifts will be tallied Friday, September 17th, and winners announced Monday, September 20th. Thanks for supporting CMU students. Fire Up Chips!
