Become a Champion for Collegiate Recovery

Your pledged donation of $1,200 per year (or $100 each month) toward the operating expenses of CSR will provide funding for CSR educational programs, volunteer activities, clean and sober social events, experiential outings, staffing and other forms of support for your student in recovery.

In return for your generous donation, you will be given a profile of the student you are championing, which will include the student's first name and last initial, hometown, academic degree program, class year and a personal note on successes and challenges in navigating the world of higher education while living free from alcohol and other drugs. You will also be invited to the annual "Breakfast of Champions" held each year in the fall. There, you will meet our students in recovery for whom participation with CSR has been a life-changing experience.

Join our Sustainers Council

Our Sustainers Council is the reason that CSR is able to keep its doors open today. By joining this council with a pledged donation of $10,000 each year for a 5-year period, you will provide the funds necessary to continue operations while we raise permanent support through endowments.

Establish an Endowment

Make a sound investment in a better future by establishing an endowment to benefit The Center for Students in Recovery. Your endowed gift provides permanent support to CSR and, in doing so, saves lives. Choosing what your endowed gift will support is simply a matter of selecting an area within CSR that matches your interests. From program support to student activities or scholarships, your legacy can take almost any form.
