Making your contribution, leaving your legacy or leveraging the contributions of fellow friends and donors can be as unique as your intention. Whether you make a gift in memory of a former professor, in honor of a renowned researcher, or in hopes of the future work of our students, you can make your gift in a number of ways.
As an alumnus/a, faculty, staff or friend, you can make a meaningful contribution to public health through an annual gift. Annual gifts are made in any amount and can support the Colorado School of Public Health fund, John R. Moran, Jr. Scholarship fund, or another one of our current funds. Annual gifts, like other charitable contributions may qualify you for tax deduction.
Student directed giving can support a variety of public health programs and causes. Student leaders understand and are committed to the importance of giving back. Student participation, rather than dollar amount matters, as all student-giving creates a stronger community at the Colorado School of Public Health.
If you are considering a way to make a lasting contribution to public health, consider an endowment. Your gift acts as an investment. The principal is professionally managed by the University of Colorado Foundation, with an amount of the annual interest set aside for program funding. Donors can give gifts to current endowments or may speak with a development officer about establishing a new endowment. Supporting public health through an endowment is the perfect way to ensure the intention and impact of your gift will last for years to come.
Making a gift to the Colorado School of Public Health can be a one time commitment or a pledge to make multiple commitments toward a single amount. Donors pledge their gift amount then make payments over a series of months or years. By making a pledge, you extend the reach of your gift from this year to the next.
If you want to leave your legacy through a planned gift, please visit the University of Colorado planned giving website. The Foundation offers you tools to create a plan, tips on tax and finance matters, donor stories and contact information for the Foundation’s planned giving officers.
Give to an Established Fund
If your intention is to support an existing program or cause, consider making a contribution to an existing fund or endowment. Doing so will leverage your gift with the power of other donors who share your passion and intention. This is the perfect way to illustrate the power of collaboration and coordination, something our school is well known for in academic and research programming.
All gifts are made to the University of Colorado Foundation. The University of Colorado Foundation is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization that raises support for the benefit of the University of Colorado including the Colorado School of Public Health. Learn more online at www.giving.cu.edu.
