Make a Gift

Gifts from community donors are an important way to help the Collegiate Recovery Community (CRC) provide support to our students in recovery and maintain a strong and vibrant campus recovery community.  Financial gifts may be directed in two ways:

CRC Scholarship Fund: Provides merit-based scholarships to members of the CRC who exhibit commitment to recovery and academic success.  Scholarship awards are posted to students’ University accounts and directly cover educational expenses. 

CRC Program Sustainability Fund: Directly benefits CRC students through support for (but not limited to) student travel to professional recovery events (conferences, legislative advocacy days, etc.), community-building activities (clean spring break, CRC group outings, etc.), and expenses that cannot be met through current funding sources.

Make a Gift by Check

Though gifts are welcome at any time, the CRC hosts its annual “Butterfly Affair” fundraiser each spring to help reach its fundraising goals for the year. Information about this event is on this website.
