Giving Tuesday occurs each year, just a few days after Thanksgiving. It’s a global day of giving fueled by our collective generosity. It is about creating a culture of philanthropy, gratitude, and giving back. 

Giving Tuesday is about bringing together all those who love Case Western Reserve University to show that collectively small gifts can make a big difference on our campus.

At CWRU, we have learned there is no greater gift than working with people who share a commitment to making a difference and thinking beyond the possible.

We proudly support our student groups, organizations, and causes which mean the most to us and make a difference in our community. This Giving Tuesday,  join us in this CWRU giving tradition and support the fund that is most important to you. Your participation helps power the future at CWRU.

This year's causes:
Thank You!

We have gone above and beyond our goals for Giving Tuesday! We want to thank everyone for showing support and giving back to a cause that's important to you!

CWRU Boxing Club Looks to Leave It's Mark!

We here at the boxing club believe boxing is so much more than just fighting; it's a sport, and it's an art. Our boxers have been working hard to hone their skills and become legitimate athletes, so what better way is there to showcase their efforts than by putting on a show? On December 2nd, the boxing club will be hosting a charity fight night where club members will take part in controlled sparring sessions to test their mettle. Proceeds from the event will benefit Team 216 of the Fairfax Recreation Center in East Cleveland. Here, kids in the area have a place to box, keeping them off the streets and giving them direction. The club has a great relationship with Team 216, and Case student and current Cleveland Golden Gloves champion "Mad" Max Hudak won his second title fighting under their colors. In order to make this event happen, our club needs plenty of capital to rent a ring and cover other expenses, but with your help, we know it will be a knockout. Let's box!

During the manufacturing process, the team experimented with multiple different manufacturing techniques including the use of CNC laser cutters, 3D printed pieces, fiber glassing and creating a CNC foam cutter for the wings and tail.
