Doris Kearns Goodwin

Presidential Historian and​ Pulitzer Prize-Winning Author

Doris Kearns Goodwin

Extrodinary Leadership in
Extrodinary Times

Enjoy an evening with Pulitzer Prize-winning author and renowned presidential historian, Doris Kearns Goodwin, while supporting CU Denver Business School students. For over 20 years, the Celebration of Success has been Denver’s premier fundraising event, bringing in world-class speakers, and raising more than $3.3 million in student scholarship funds. This year, our goal is to raise over $200,000 to put toward helping students advance their education—and we need your help.

With tuition on the rise, we’re calling on community leaders like you to help make college affordability possible by sponsoring the largest and most important fundraising event of the year. Your generous contribution will have a direct impact on the CU Denver Business School. With a table sponsorship of $10,000 you will help six students with tuition support. A $25,000 gift will create a scholarship in your name, and allow you the freedom to define how the award helps students.​

About Our Speaker

“America’s historian in-chief” Doris Kearns Goodwin brings history alive with an uncanny sense of detail and a master storyteller’s grasp of depth. She examines the leadership triumphs, trials and tribulations of the men and women who have shaped this nation, culled from her lifetime examination of the U.S. presidency. As one of the most recognized authors, she has written several best-selling books including, Team of Rivals and The Bully Pulpit. Goodwin will bring the audience into her analysis of the recent 2016 election cycle and offer intriguing commentary around the election of our new president.

Great Networking and Connections

The gala is considered among the most prominent events held within the Denver business community. You and your guests will have opportunities to meet and network with the Business School’s extended community of friends.
