Support the School

Gifts that make you smile

Over the past forty years the University of Colorado School of Dental Medicine has strived to create a premier dental school, one focused on excellence in dental education, research, patient care and service for communities throughout Colorado and around the world. 

With the support of our alumni and friends, we built a world-class educational and clinical facility, created new scholarship funds for students, endowed a faculty chair in the prevention of childhood caries and cared for the smiles of our state’s underserved communities. We are looking to you – our alumni and friends - to help us do it again.

When we look to the future of our profession, we see a critical need to invest in student success by finding and funding innovations in the education and practice dentistry.

From the cost of education to the evolution in patient care, we know that the future of dentistry lies in the hands of our students. We believe that their success will help to ensure the success of our profession.

The new CU Dental Student Success academic campaign is centered on our goal to support each member of the student body by promoting their academic and professional development. Private support is critical to achieving this goal. 

Support the Campaign

In partnership with our alumni, friends and community, we aim to raise $10 million to advance four funding priorities of the CU Dental Student Success campaign. 

  • Student Support: $5 million for scholarships, grants and mentoring programs
  • Program Support: $2 million for contemporary curriculum that provides interprofessional education, working with the latest technologies, and transformative clinical care
  • Faculty Support: $2 million for  endowed chairs in areas of academic and practice excellence
  • Research Support: $1 million to advance clinical research and build the research expertise of our students

Gifts of any amount made to the University of Colorado Foundation with a designation to support a dental school fund will help us achieve our goal.  

We invite you to join us by supporting the CU Dental Student Success academic campaign and fundraising initiative today.  With your support and partnership, we'll create smiles for our students and the patients that they are trained to serve.

When making a contribution, dental school donors may elect to designate their gift to the school's general fund or a specific program fund. Gifts may also be made in honor or memory of friend, colleague​ or family member. 

About the CU Foundation: The University of Colorado Foundation manages the private gifts and endowments that help CU achieve its education, research, outreach, and health care goals. Every day, donors make a difference throughout CU’s four campuses. Our partnership helps CU donor dollars go further. ​
