University of Colorado Colorado Springs: College of Business


Annual Fund

The Annual Fund represents one of the most flexible opportunities for you to give back to the College of Business. Your Annual Fund gift can be designated to benefit a specified department or program, or remain unrestricted, allowing support to go to the areas of greatest need.

The Annual Fund also benefits student scholarships, including grants to undergraduates and graduate students; gifts promote the work of our distinguished faculty; and gifts help the college start new programs and strengthen existing ones.

Where your gift is needed

Alumni & Friends Scholarship Fund - Undesignated Gifts - General Scholarship Fund - Alumni Association Programs

Ways to give

Gifts of Cash

Cash gifts are put to work immediately for the College and allow donors to take applicable credits and deductions in the current tax year.

Gifts of Securities

Appreciated securities significantly reduce the donor's capital gains tax.

Matching Gifts

Many companies demonstrate their support of education by matching or multiplying their employee's gifts. Before making a gift contact your employer's personnel office for the necessary matching gift forms.
