Why Give

Ensuring that Colorado State University students have access to a world-class education and are exposed to leading edge research and discovery so that they can find their purpose in this world requires resources. Private support is integral to this mission.

Our alumni, friends, corporations, and foundations help us raise the financial support necessary to advance the University’s mission and vision.

The State Your Purpose Campaign for Colorado State University, sought to raise $1 billion by 2020 to:

  • Dramatically increase the number of scholarships so CSU can continue to attract, recruit, and create access for outstanding students throughout the state, the country, and the world.
  • Invest in world class infrastructure – classrooms, labs, residence halls and events facilities – so CSU can achieve across-the-board excellence.
  • Provide resources to exceptional programs so CSU can continue to attract the leading faculty and staff minds in the world to further research and teaching.
  • Significantly increase CSU’s endowment for the long term financial health of the University.

Thanks to your generosity, we raised $1 billion almost two years ahead of schedule. Now, we ask that you join us as we go Beyond a Billion to ensure CSU is on solid ground for her next 150 years!

This is our time. Time for action without compromise.

Time for each of us to rise to the heights to which we are called.

Passion is just preoccupation until it’s realized. And a revolution of one is just an outburst.

But when we act together, as Rams, one purpose becomes a movement.

Join us.
