Student Giving at CMU
When you give back go Carnegie Mellon, it is more than a donation — it’s your chance to leave a legacy at CMU and help future Tartans for years to come. Your gift is an expression of appreciation for the experiences that made your time at CMU so incredible.
Give to what you love
You can support the area of CMU that means the most to you — a college, department, club, organization or program that has made a difference in your life. Any gift of $5 or greater will be counted.
It is important for us to support the next generation of students so they can have the same wonderful experience we currently have.”
