Centenary University’s mission is simple, yet far-reaching: to educate leaders who will someday shape our world. Our benefactors—alumni, parents, business professionals, companies, and friends—play a critical role in this mission. Your gifts to Centenary University fund top academic programs, scholarships for deserving students, outstanding athletics, campus improvements, and much more. Here are four ways to make the biggest impact:

The Centenary Fund

The Centenary Fund provides immediate, flexible resources that make a direct impact on the student experience, including through scholarships and financial assistance. Through their gifts, donors fund bold learning initiatives that create extraordinary opportunities for Centenary University students.

Scholarships

Your gift to the unrestricted scholarship fund provides opportunities for young adults to experience the life-changing power of a Centenary education. At Centenary, 99% of all incoming freshmen receive a grant or scholarship, with an average award of more than $27,000. Every gift—whether large or small—helps to make a Centenary education affordable for students who may not otherwise attend college.

Leadership Giving

These benefactors lead the charge in helping to shape Centenary University’s future. The dedicated members of The Centenary Society and the President’s Advisory Council (PAC) have demonstrated their commitment to the University through a high level of sustained support.

Centenary University Endowment

Endowment gifts create a lasting legacy for the donor or a special honoree, while providing crucial support for the University, now and in the future. Endowment gifts are invested by Centenary’s financial professionals to fund scholarships, academic programs, facilities improvements, and more.
