CSU celebrating its thousands of donors

November 13, 2013

CSU's Division of University Advancement is celebrating National Philanthropy Day today by thanking its thousands of donors for their generous support.

Colorado State University had its greatest fundraising year in 2012-2013, with 33,614 donors giving more than $112.4 million to support scholarships, programs, and building initiatives. The donor and money numbers are both records. The fundraising numbers represent private support from individuals, families, corporations, and foundations for the CSU Fort Collins campus.

“We are so grateful and proud to celebrate our incredible donors on National Philanthropy Day. Without the commitment and private support we receive from these generous individuals, families, corporations, and foundations, CSU simply would not be one of the top public research universities in the country,” said Brett Anderson, vice president for University Advancement.

CSU's Presidential Ambassadors and fellow students gathered recently to express their gratitude for the support that enhances their educational experience.

Fundraising highlights

  • CSU continues to be one of the nation’s most veteran-friendly campuses, serving more than 1,000 student-veterans. Gifts received this year to the University’s nationally ranked Department of Occupational Therapy include $250,000 from CSU alumnus Dennis Repp to establish the New Start Repp Distinguished Veterans fund. The fund provides direct support, including adaptive devices, if needed, for personal and education use, and guidance for student-veterans, giving them anew start in their lives and the opportunity to succeed in college and in life after serving our country.
  • Private scholarship support for CSU students rose last year, with a funding increase in need-based and merit-based undergraduate scholarships and graduate scholarships and fellowships.

National Philanthropy Day began in 1985 and will be celebrated in more than 100 cities across the country.
