THE ANNUAL FUND
Your gifts to the Caldwell University Annual Fund empower our students to prepare for a successful future by making the most of their education.
Our undergraduates and graduate students get ready for a prosperous tomorrow through our engaging academic programs; cutting-edge educational technology; generous financial aid; immersive career mentorship; competitive NCAA athletics; and more.
At Caldwell, these initiatives—along with a litany of others—are strong because of the Annual Fund, which supports them in realtime by swiftly channeling much-needed resources to the areas that need them most.
Your gifts to the Annual Fund are crucial because they make it possible for us to do this, to give our students the educational edge they deserve.
We count on your support for the very same reason—because they’re counting on us.
Types of Annual Fund Giving:
So that you can choose to support what matters most to you, the Caldwell University Annual Fund offers restricted and unrestricted giving programs for all donors.
Unrestricted gifts are put into action by the college’s leadership to support areas with the greatest need.
Restricted gifts are directed to a specific program or initiative by the donor.
Cougar Pride Affinity Fund
Choosing to give to the Cougar Pride Affinity Fund is an easy way to direct gifts to Caldwell University Athletics in support of our NCAA sports programs. The university offers a total of 12 teams, including men’s and women’s basketball, soccer and tennis.
