Support CSU for her next 150 years

Generous donations impact all that is CSU. From student access, to growing diverse and comprehensive academic programming, to building world-class learning environments and attracting the best and brightest faculty and researchers, your investment makes all the difference in CSU’s future.

Gifts of all sizes help create scholarships, support faculty, boost CSU’s research enterprise, and shape our physical campus. Investing in these areas lays the foundation for CSU’s next 150 years. 

Your Generosity, Your Impact:

  • In April, 1,790 donors pitched in during Colorado State University’s Love Your State, Day of Giving to raise a record $732,596. Gifts supported scholarships and Rams Against Hunger, a campus program that provides meals to CSU students experiencing food insecurity
  • Alumnus Michael Smith and his wife, Iris, created more than 100 scholarships for students in business, chemistry, and geosciences, and supported the construction of the new Michael Smith Natural Resources Building and the Iris & Michael Smith Alumni Center
  • Nancy (’82) and Curt Richardson, co-founders of OtterBox and Blue Ocean Enterprises, donated $8.1 million for the Nancy Richardson Design Center. The center will house design studios, fabrication/prototype/ideation labs, presentation spaces, and classrooms and computer labs, and challenge students and faculty to think differently when creating and innovating.
