MSU Denver

2022 Day of Giving

Join fellow Roadrunners for the sixth annual MSU Denver Day of Giving on March 31! Day of Giving is a way for alumni, faculty, staff, students and community members to provide Roadrunners with the resources they need to rise to reach their goals in the classroom, in their careers and as leaders in their communities.

Last year, 866 donors helped raise over $207,000 to support scholarships, special projects, student-support services, athletics, student clubs/organizations and more. Imagine how high our students can fly when HEROES like you are Helping Every Roadrunner Obtain Excellence and Success!

With your gift, you will get us one step closer to reaching our goal of 900 Day of Giving donors supporting MSU Denver students! Together, we can help all Roadrunners rise!

Social Media Advocate Sign Up

The easiest way to make an impact on MSU Denver Day of Giving is by signing up to become a social media advocate. Becoming an Advocate makes spreading the word about your campaign easy, fun, and rewarding because you know exactly how many clicks, gifts, and dollars your outreach is generating in real time. The best part is, the advocate who raises the most money and the advocate that brings in the most gifts will win Day of Giving bonus funds to award to the project of their choice!

Last year, over 50 advocates brought in nearly $22,000 for giving day projects. We are counting on you to spread the word and encourage fellow Roadrunners to make a gift to help us reach our goal of 900 donors!
