Gra tus (Latin/adjective/grātus) | Grateful, thankful

Gratus means thankful, and our Gratus event is a special night when the Catholic University community comes together to celebrate our friends and benefactors. We are so appreciative of your steadfast support, this year more than ever before. Thanks to you, the University has been able to weather the pandemic without compromising the high quality of a Catholic University education. While we wish we could be together in person, we hope you enjoy this virtual celebration!

April 7: Unite with our community

The Founders Day Giving Challenge

On April 7, 2021, join the Founders Day Giving Challenge and contribute to the success of Catholic University. This is our one day when alumni, parents, faculty, staff, students, and friends come together and demonstrate that, when it comes to making a difference, this community is powerful.

Showcase your Cardinal pride, participate in some friendly and fun competition and, most importantly, make an impact on current and future students by making a gift to any designation of your choice.
