Students collaborate in the Susi Lab

Case Western Reserve University relies on community support year-round to provide students, faculty and staff with the opportunities and resources they need to think beyond the possible. Two times each year, we invite you to join in the fun by championing our crowdfunding campaigns.

Day of Giving

Case Western Reserve University’s Day of Giving is a chance for alumni, faculty, students and friends to give back to the campus causes that are most meaningful to them.

From student scholarships and emergency funds to groundbreaking research and diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives, groups across campus are working to improve myriad aspects of the Case Western Reserve experience.

This campuswide campaign allows individuals to support the school, institute or program about which they are most passionate.

Anyone can get involved by:

  • making a one-time gift to Case Western Reserve University,
  • committing to monthly support, or
  • becoming an advocate and spreading the word about #CWRUMakesItPossible through social media.

An all-time record-breaking 2,824 members of the Case Western Reserve community came together during the 2023 Day of Giving to Make It Possible for the student experience. Read more about the 2023 campaign and keep an eye out for details about our next Day of Giving April 10, 2024.
