Annual and Special Giving

One of the hallmarks of every great university is faithful, consistent giving by its alumni and friends. Gifts to the Clark Atlanta University Annual Fund help the University meet needs and challenges when they arise. These unrestricted funds gives the flexibility to undertake critical new initiatives and opportunities for our students and faculty. 

The Office of Annual Fund falls under the Division of Institutional Advancement and University Relations.  The Office develops tactical university-wide and unit-specific fund solicitation strategies for annual gifts that complement and support the fundraising efforts of Clark Atlanta University campus wide.  The Office also supports the cultivation and solicitation of special and major gift prospects for restricted and unrestricted purposes, in addition to managing volunteers who assist with Annual Fund and Major Gift programs, events and activities.

For more information about giving to Clark Atlanta University, please contact the Office of Annual Fund and Special Giving at (404) 880-8742 or email planmygift@cau.edu.

“Lifting every voice is a charge…forward.  It will be infused into everything we do, from curricular and programmatic changes, to rebuilding bridges with all of our University stakeholders, to expanding our students’ worldview so that they become responsible global citizens.  All members of the University community will have their say as we embark on this remarkable journey, together.” 

Dr. Ronald A. Johnson

- quote from inaugural speech
Inauguration Ceremony of the Fourth President of Clark Atlanta University
October 8, 2016

Clark Atlanta University has experienced a banner year with enrollment higher than it has been since 2007, sounding very clearly that the University continues to provide a very competitive education. It is also our desire that every student who earns their place at the University has the financial resources to complete their education.

As the cost of a college education continues to escalate—a trend that disproportionately affects students of color—we cannot afford to leave students behind with untold potential. We must ensure that their contributions to society are counted and that their voices are heard.

This is why your gift is so important. Your contributions will help us lead the charge in educating our students!
