Outright gifts make up the majority of contributions to CU and encompass the following gift types: cash, stocks and bonds, real estate, tangible personal property, matching gifts or gifts-in-kind. In general, outright gifts qualify for an immediate income tax deduction.

For questions or more detailed information, please call 303-541-1290 or email gifts@cufund.org.

Endowments are gifts that keep on giving and serve as a reliable long-term funding source that supports a designated purpose or program at CU in perpetuity.

The principal amount of an endowed fund is permanently invested by the University of Colorado Foundation in its Long Term Investment Pool (LTIP), generating interest income that is then used to fund the purpose or program designated by the donor.

You can designate any gift in honor or memory of a loved one or influential individual. To begin, choose a fund and select “Yes” under the memory and honor section when entering your gift amount.

When you include CU Anschutz in your estate plans, you make a difference in Colorado and beyond. There are many ways to connect your legacy with the incredible work happening here. 


A donor advised fund (DAF), which is like a charitable savings account, gives you the flexibility to recommend how much and how often money is granted to the University of Colorado and other qualified charities. You can recommend a grant or recurring grants now to make an immediate impact or use your fund as a tool for future charitable gifts.

Crowdfunding is a unique form of fundraising, attracting small contributions from a large number of people to provide funding for a particular project or campaign. Unlike traditional funds, crowdfunding projects are created and led by CU faculty, staff and students, and have specific funding goals, project objectives and timelines. 

Supporters can contribute to a project that inspires them, then keep up with project developments and spread the word to help generate interest and enable project teams to reach their goals. Start a crowdfunding project here.
