Below you will find answers to many common questions about 2022 Colorado State University Day of Giving.

What is Giving Day?

The CSU Day of Giving is a university-wide effort to inspire Rams everywhere to make a gift in support of the people, places, and programs that make the University extraordinary. For one day, on May 5, students, parents, faculty, staff, friends and alumni unite to show their support for the University. 

Why should I participate in the CSU Day of Giving?

You will be one of thousands of Rams that make a gift, which add up to make a transformational impact.  Your role in this effort is so important, and you'll get to see firsthand the power of collective support!

How do I donate?

Make your gift by clicking the "Give Now" button on the main webpage, or select the area on campus that you are most passionate about and make a gift to support a variety of specific areas.


To make a gift by check, please make it payable to the CSU Foundation, and mail it to:


Colorado State University Foundation
300 University Services Center
Fort Collins, CO 80523

What does my gift support?

It's completely up to you!  Each college and unit on campus has selected a featured fund, so please browse each area to learn more about the impact each giving opportunity makes.  If you would like to give to an area that isn't featured, you can click here and search for the gift fund that is most special to you!

Is this an official CSU event?

Yes!  The platform we use is connected to the CSU Foundation, and all gifts made directly impact charitable gift funds that exist to support CSU.  Transactions are secure, and you will receive confirmation of your gift from the University.
