A Lifetime of Giving Back
“CU has served as a bookend for us. It was there for us before I went to Vietnam, and it was there for us after I returned from the war. We want CU to always be here.”
Alumni support is a source of great pride for CU. Approximately half our donors are alumni.
CU alumni have made an enormous impact through gifts that have constructed new buildings, expanded opportunities to attend CU with new scholarships, and launched dynamic new programs. From real estate gifts to bequests to annual gifts, alumni are transforming lives and shaping CU’s future.
As an alum, you have an added incentive to make a gift: donations from alumni boost CU’s reputation. College guidebooks such as U.S. News & World Report consider alumni giving an important measure of a university’s prestige, because it reflects pride and confidence in the value of their degree. By giving to CU, you can improve both the university’s finances and its reputation.
In November 2008, the CU-Boulder Alumni Association discontinued its membership dues program and welcomed all 230,000 alumni and 30,000 students as lifelong members. Today, everyone’s a Forever Buff! If you aren’t an alum or student but want to be part of the Forever Buffs family OR if you want to join one of the Alumni Association’s booster groups, make your gift here.
