What is Giving Day

CUGIVEBACK is the name of a 24-hour online giving campaign designed to provide alumni, donors and friends an opportunity to support student scholarships and select funds to shape the future of our students. Through your generous donations, the giving day will provide needed funds to support student scholarships, programs and other funds through a highly visible celebration of Concordia University Irvine and the generosity of those who support the institution.

Is my donation tax-deductible?
