Your support creates CDU stories.

We continue to evolve and grow in stride, continually shaped by the needs of the community we serve. Throughout the years, community visionaries have donated time, insight, and financial resources to build our University.  As a result, we’ve become a recognized leader in education, community-based research, and providing patient care with excellence and compassion. A vast majority of CDU graduates dedicate themselves to life-long careers working in underserved communities.

When you make your gift, you can specify how it will be used or you can contribute to the General Fund. You can help fund scholarships for students, support research opportunities, or contribute to community-based initiatives. However you decide to make an impact, we thank you. Your gift helps CDU preserve and build upon its 50 Years of Mission.

I want to #Give50.
