Claremont Graduate University is home to an innovative, ambitious community of scholars who are creating new knowledge to address the most pressing problems in society. A charitable gift to CGU provides inspiration and encouragement for current and future generations of students seeking to make a difference in the world. Your generosity helps us—and the world—thrive.



Claremont Graduate University Recognition Clubs

Claremont Graduate University recognizes donors who contribute $1,000 or more per year. Members of the Blaisdell Society and The Colleagues are invited to attend a fall and a spring brunch in their honor. Typically held at the CGU president’s house, these events provide supporters with a “state of the University” update as well as time to interact with faculty and students.

The Blaisdell Society
Named after our founding president, James Blaisdell, The Blaisdell Society consists of individuals who have made estate commitments or have entered lifetime contracts with Claremont Graduate University. The generosity of these alumni and friends provides vital support for our future.

The Colleagues
The Colleagues is a community of generous CGU alumni and friends who share Claremont Graduate University’s steadfast commitment to graduate education by supporting CGU with a minimum annual fund gift of $1,000.
