Welcome to CU Denver Advancement

CU Denver Advancement

We invite any and all alumni, students, donors, friends, faculty and staff members to contact us if you have ideas for ways to engage and build a better future for CU Denver! We welcome your participation.

The University of Colorado Denver Office of Advancement
is a hub for alumni relations and fundraising activities for the campus. Our professional staff collaborates with campus leadership, faculty and staff to identify funding needs, opportunities and priorities. At the same time, we maintain contact with individual alumni and friends, and with local and national corporations and foundations to cultivate their awareness, interest and investment. In addition, alumni relations provides meaningful avenues for alumni to remain connected with the university.

Whether in person or by phone, mail or social media, whether for planning a bequest or responding to the annual giving solicitations, CU Denver’s advancement professionals work closely with donors to assist them in considering and making gifts that reflect their philanthropic intentions in supporting the university’s people and programs. Equally important, we ensure that gift funds are applied in accordance with donors’ wishes and that donors are recognized and appreciated for their generosity.

Giving to CU Denver

Our team can help you learn more about the many ways that your generosity can make a meaningful difference!​

Gifts come from alumni who are grateful to CU Denver for shaping their career and life skills; from faculty and staff who believe in the importance of CU Denver's academic excellence; from volunteers and friends who are committed to the value of CU Denver's investments in programs and people. The impact of these gifts can be seen everywhere – in student successes, in stellar academic programs, in state of the art facilities.
