CUCelebrates, Concordia-Chicago’s fifth annual day of giving, brought the entire University community together to show the world we are 100% behind the CUC mission and the students we serve.

On Tuesday, March 2, nearly 300 donors shared a gift supporting every area of the University. Multiple partners stepped forward to ensure CUCelebrates 2021 was a record-breaking day. Dollar-for-dollar matches helped to fund 12 CUCelebrates Challenges for scholarship, student services, athletics, fine arts and more.
