The Cardinal community came together for yet another year to help usher in the next generation of Cardinals. Collectively, Catholic University alumni, faculty, staff, parents, friends, and students raised more than $94,000 for student scholarships, surpassing last year’s total of more than $75,000. The community’s commitment to student success and scholarship was reinforced once again, as 161 donors participated in Giving Tuesday 2022. Thanks to the Cardinal community coming together in the spirit of generosity, our donors collectively unlocked $50,000 in challenge gifts for the Columbus School of Law, the Senior Class Gift from the Class of 2023, and general scholarships.

Scholarships help to ensure that students who may not otherwise be able to attend the University have the opportunity to receive a Catholic University education. These contributions fill the gap many students face as they prepare to embark on the next stage of their journey. In 2020, nearly 60 percent of families nationwide used scholarships to help pay for education at both public and private institutions, proving these funds are vital to many students who seek higher education.

Thank you to all who found it in their hearts to give to student scholarships this year—you’ve made a significant impact on the lives of current and future students.
