Make a Difference

The opportunities for you to support Central are endless. Each year students, faculty and staff identify specific needs to be met by our generous donors. Scholarships are always a priority, as they help to ensure that the door to education is open for anyone who wishes to seek it, but there are many areas on campus where you can leave your mark and advance the mission of Central. You make a difference by supporting the Central area(s) you feel most passionate about, and helping to change the lives of our students, our community, and the world.

When you give a gift to Central, you're giving a vote a confidence to our students, and are actively supporting generations of Eagles and their dreams.
