Faculty and Staff Giving

Giving back to Colorado State University unites all faculty and staff, and we are grateful for your support. You are empowered to give to the area that you are most passionate about, and your gift sets an important example to Rams everywhere.


Every gift to Colorado State University — no matter how large or small — is important and has the power to transform lives. If you are a faculty or staff member at CSU, you have a unique perspective about the areas that require support. Private contributions have increased in importance as the University seeks to maintain and enhance programs, support our campus community, and build for the future.

You have the power to direct your gifts to any area you wish, and you have the benefit of using payroll deduction to seamlessly contribute each month.


Donor Connect is your exclusive giving portal and the easiest way for you to direct your gifts to the area on campus that means the most to you. Simply log in using your eID, and you can start or modify a payroll deduction, fulfill a pledge, make a gift, view your giving history, view staff giving, and so much more. 

The system is available to you 24/7 and is password protected, so you can have confidence that your online information is secure.


Your gifts are especially meaningful, and to show our appreciation, we hope you can join fellow faculty and staff donors each spring for the annual barbecue lunch. Also, you will receive a unique gift at the beginning of each academic year for going above and beyond in making CSU a special place.

In addition, faculty and staff who are CSU graduates can enjoy even more benefits as Alumni Association members. Learn more.

As a donor to CSU, your passion and purpose ensures that the University advances its mission and leads the way in education and research. Thank you for ensuring that Colorado State University sustains its power as a world-class university.

“I support Colorado State University because I have seen the transformative power of education in my life, and see it in my students’ lives as well. I support CSU because I want to be a part of the change I want to see in the world.”

"As a graduate of CSU and current employee, I have seen first hand what an education can do for our students. We are providing an opportunity to expand minds, encourage exploration, and change the world!"
