MSU Denver Day of Giving 2021

Day of Giving is a way for alumni, faculty, staff, students and community members to provide the ingredients essential to our Roadrunner recipe for success, including support for campus projects. Last year, more than 700 donors came together to raise more than $155,000 for the Student Emergency Fund, the Roadrunner Food Pantry, the EPIC Scholars program, arts and culture events, athletics and more. Those funds made a significant difference in the lives of our most vulnerable students at a critical time.

Together, we can ensure all Roadrunners are able to reimagine a future where anything is possible!

Ways to Give


With the way the State Legislature has changed higher education funding over the years, every donation, at any level, helps students spend a little less on their education or reduce the amount of student debt that will follow them after graduation. I challenge each MSU Denver alumni – all 90,000+ of you – to give. Every dollar helps.
