Support Your Passion at CSU

In a single day last April, more than 1,790 donors pitched in during Colorado State University’s fourth annual Love Your State Day of Giving to raise a record $732,596. Some of those gifts went to support research and scholarships for students, while others went to the very basics: meals through Rams Against Hunger for students experiencing food insecurity.

“From $1 to $25,000, every single gift matters in supporting our students and achieving our CSU mission," says Kim Tobin, vice president for University Advancement.

Donors ensured CSU students from independent backgrounds – former foster youth – receive the support and encouragement they need to succeed through the Fostering Success program.

The collective generosity of alumni, donors, and friends has a transformational impact on CSU. Every gift has the power to change lives.

Your support – in whatever amount – demonstrates your belief in the future of Colorado State University.

Goal for 2020: 150,000 donors to the campaign
