Annual and Special Giving

Invest in Clark Atlanta University. Invest in our Students. Give Every Year.

This fall, nearly 4,000 students enrolled in Clark Atlanta University to embark on the next chapter of their lives.  This semester has come to a close and your support has played a critical part in their journey and future success.  The Annual Fund is Clark Atlanta’s annual giving program.  It is an important component of the school’s annual operating budget and provides direct funding for the University’s day-to-day expenses that tuition alone simply does not cover.

The unrestricted fund gives the University the flexibility to undertake new initiatives and provide scholarship funding for those students who have the greatest need.Donors may choose to designate their funds or support University programs and initiatives that are meaningful to them by giving to the following areas:

Within the Annual Fund are Clark Atlanta University’s giving societies. CAU’s giving societies recognize the committed alumni and friends who contribute financially to the University.  These giving societies encompass a special community of investors who serve as the foundation for growth at Clark Atlanta University. We welcome your involvement at any of a number of levels:

Friends of CAU: $500 - $999
CAU Red, Black, & Grey:     $1,000 - $4,999
CAU Sustainer Club: $5,000 - $9,999
CAU Heritage Club: $10,000 - $24,999
CAU President’s Society: $25,000 - $49,999
CAU James P. Brawley Society: $50,000 – $99,999
CAU W.E.B. DuBois Society: $100,000 - $499,999
CAU Legacy Society: $500,000 and above

It take each of us to make a difference for all of us. Clark Atlanta has a strong foundation because of you! Every year we ask our constituency —board of trustees, alumni, faculty, staff and friends to give to the Annual Fund!

This year our annual fund goal is $1 million dollars! Most would say that is a very aggressive goal to reach in one year, but aren’t our students worth it? It is our hope that 100% of the CAU community will participate by contributing / To make sure your giving counts in 2017, all donations must by received by December 31, 2017.
