Philanthropy Week

Building Tomorrow: Positive Change through Philanthropy

Philanthropy – the power of giving back – built this university into a vibrant learning community and is the key to sustaining its future.

Every year CEU celebrates that power during annual Philanthropy Week, in the fall term. Join as we explore the possibilities philanthropy is unlocking in higher education, celebrate what we’ve been given, and spotlight how we can all make a positive contribution and build a better tomorrow. On campus, at events around the world and online, Philanthropy Week is when CEU’s global community comes together to make positive change happen, through acts of generosity great and small.

Learn More & Get Involved:

There are many ways to celebrate giving, learn more, and help build a better tomorrow, through fun, empowering events in Budapest and around the world (see events, left).
