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

Every year in early April, we gamify philanthropic support with a series of time-sensitive giving challenges. By presenting shared goals and stimulating friendly rivalries, we foster a communal sense of Cardinal pride.

As an individual, you can vie for glory on social media. As part of a community, you can help your favorite department, school, athletic team, or student organization unlock generously donated challenge prizes.

No matter the size of your gift, you make The Founders Day Giving Challenge successful just by participating. Thank you!

Become a social media ambassador

Get others to support our efforts to advance Catholic University. Most prominently, we ask you to promote The Founders Day Giving Challenge and share why you supported using #CUFoundersDay.

In advance of the challenge, we’ll send you free swag and talking points. You’ll encourage your social circles to join you in supporting Catholic University with a gift.
