A gift is anything of value given to the University by an external party (donor) who expects nothing of significant value in return, other than acknowledgement of the gift and disposition of the gift on accordance with donor wishes.
All employees working with Gift Funds need to take the on-line training through Employee Learning & Development which can be accessed through the portal. If an employee has already taken the Gift Fund course they do not have to take it again. However, it is encouraged for employees to go the new training modules because they better explain how gifts function. There are two courses:
CU: Gift Fund Management- Advance Course (optional but recommended)
CU: Gift Fund Management- Beginner Course (required)
