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.

The Catholic University of America is proud to participate in Giving Tuesday, the global day of giving. You demonstrate the strength of the Catholic University community and the value collectively placed on a Catholic University education:

  • Make a gift: With your monetary support, Catholic University can continue to educate future scientists, engineers, nurses, philosophers, theologians, historians, architects, social workers, musicians, artists, and scholars who will become future leaders of our world.
  • Spread the word: Your generous gift sets an example for others, and by sharing your enthusiasm on social media, you encourage other people to follow your lead.

Your support is vital to Catholic University’s success. Thank you for believing in the power of a Catholic University education and our pursuit to improve the world through our students. 

What is Giving Tuesday?

In 2012, Giving Tuesday was created as a response to the shopping extravaganzas that are Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Giving Tuesday reframes the days after Thanksgiving as not just the start of a shopping season but also the start of a giving season when people rally around causes important to them.

Giving to Catholic University on any day of the year is recognized and appreciated but days like Giving Tuesday provide an opportunity to join together with hundreds of other community members in supporting a common goal.


Go beyond the standard #GivingTuesday hashtag. Show your support for Catholic University by using #GivingTueCatholicU.

Be sure to tag us too: @CatholicUalumni on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
