“More than 113,000 donors have tapped into their passions and given to areas that they care about at CSU during this campaign,”
said Kim Tobin, CSU vice president for University Advancement.

“Every gift matters at Colorado State University, big or small. The collective generosity of thousands of donors has truly transformed the campus and greatly impacted the experiences of our students and our faculty.”

Go Beyond a Billion

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:
