Philanthropy Week


Philanthropy Week
Philanthropy Week

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. 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. Philanthropy Week is when CEU’s global community comes together to make positive change happen, through acts of generosity great and small. Given the challenge of the COVID-19 pandemic, it's so important to celebrate how we have come together through philanthropy and volunteerism in inspiring ways.

This year, Philanthropy Week will be from May 17 to 21 and includes the following online events:

  • Doing Good in a Changing World: A Conversation with Alumni Leaders in Philanthropy about global trends, future challenges, and the impact of COVID-19 on philanthropy
  • Media Philanthropy in the Global Pandemic: A New Way or Business as Usual, a discussion with leading media and journalism funders
  • Maximizing Engagement with American Philanthropy in Europe, a seminar for Vienna-based NGO partners
  • “Ask a Fundraiser” for faculty and staff to discuss research ideas and seek support
  • Student Voices: Philanthropy in Action, a student-led discussion on the importance of philanthropy and volunteerism
  • Student Debate: Should Philanthropy fill in the gap left by Government?

News

CEU Trustee Matthew Nimetz has made a $200,000 five-year commitment to CEU’s School of Public Policy (SPP). Nimetz’s gift will provide scholarship funding for six students from southeastern Europe, enabling them to join the inaugural class of the school’s two-year Master in Public Administration degree program in September 2013. It is the first major charitable gift to SPP—and the only one designated for scholarships—since the school’s public launch in August 2011.
