Signature Events

Alumni Association Awards Ceremony

During this biennial event, we honor the extraordinary work and service of Catholic University's most distinguished alumni and other deserving individuals.

Cardinal Days of Service

Imagine alumni, parents, students, faculty, staff, and friends of Catholic University uniting for an entire month to volunteer in their communities across the globe. Although separated geographically, we can serve as one. Our bond would be stronger than the distances that separate us. Our sum would be greater than our parts. Our impact would be truly awesome.

The Founders Day Giving Challenge

Celebrate the founding of The Catholic University of America by participating in our annual day of giving!

Senior Class Gift

Each year, the senior class rallies to advance Catholic University by generously contributing to the Senior Class Gift. This year, the students on the Senior Class Gift Committee ask the Class of 2020 to create a legacy unlike any other: One entire class pooling its resources to financially support one student who may not otherwise be able to pursue a Catholic University education.

Reunion Class Challenge

Ten reunion classes compete for awards in four categories. The winning classes bolster their legacies and earn bragging rights for the next five years. Can you and your classmates rise to the challenge?

Giving Tuesday: #GivingTueCatholicU

On the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, consider making  The Catholic University of America a philanthropic priority during the giving season. Be a part of a larger cause by making a gift to the University and sharing your support on social media.

Cardinal Athletics Giving Challenge

Who would win between football and basketball? Lacrosse and tennis? Golf and volleyball? We’ll never have a definitive answer, but with the Cardinal Athletics Giving Challenge, we level the playing field so that the varsity sports can compete against each other.

Scholarship Dinner

Each year, we celebrate scholarship donors and their scholars.

Athletics Hall of Fame

In collaboration with the Athletics Department, we recognize and honor alumni and coaches who made distinguished contributions to varsity athletics at Catholic University.

Cardinal Weekend

Cardinal Weekend is our annual homecoming and reunion extravaganza. We encourage all alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and students to join us for this largest gathering of The Catholic University of America's extended family.
