LYNX UP is CU Denver's ongoing employee giving campaign during which CU Denver’s faculty and staff reach into their own pockets to help our students succeed by making personal gifts throughout the year for student support and programs. Their generosity is much appreciated and evidence of CU Denver's people-centered culture. 

In 2020, faculty and staff broke all of their previous records for philanthropic support, contributing $182,000 for scholarships, student support, and other funds near and dear to them. In 2021, our goal is to surpass last year's record while continuing to spread the joy that philanthropy brings to students and to those who contribute. 

We are grateful to our faculty and staff LYNX UP Ambassadors who spearheaded this initiative and continue to advocate for the campaign among their colleagues.
