Faculty and Staff Gift Planning

When you include CU Denver in your estate plans, you can design and create a future legacy endowment that will make a lasting impact on students' lives. There are many planned giving options available, and an ideal, easy, and revocable way to accomplish this legacy gift is to include CU Denver as a beneficiary in your TIAA or PERA retirement account.

  • Your planned gift can establish a named, endowed scholarship that will last in perpetuity, growing with the university’s endowment and providing scholarships far into the future.
  • A gift officer will work with you to explore the planned giving option that’s best for you, including wills, trusts, and beneficiary designations.
  • We will work with you to define the criteria for your named scholarship, documenting your intent in a Testamentary Fund Agreement.
  • By taking part in this opportunity, you will become a member of the Heritage Society, an exclusive group of donors who make a commitment to the future of the University of Colorado through planned gifts.
