Let us help you reach your philanthropic goals

At MSU Denver, we believe every student deserves the opportunity to pursue their dreams. We know higher education is the critical factor in upward economic and social mobility, and that is why we offer a high-quality education that prepares students to be well-rounded and work-ready.

MSU Denver educates more Coloradans than any other public institution in the state, yet we receive the lease state funding per student. Our availability to offer access to educational opportunities depends on everyone’s support and generosity.

Calendar Year End Giving

Making a gift at the end of the year is a great way to support MSU Denver and take advantage of potential take tax benefits you may qualify for this year.

Remember, the Taxpayer Certainty and Disaster Tax Relief Act of 2020 has been extended to 2021, allowing most individuals – even those who choose to take the standard deduction – to deduct up to $600 in donations to qualified charities (like MSU Denver) on their federal income tax returns.

We invite you to explore the many ways you can make a difference for Roadrunners this season!

Gifts of Stocks/Securities

Making a gift of stocks/securities is a great way to support the MSU Denver Roadrunner community. Follow this link for detailed delivery instructions.

IRA Charitable Rollovers

IRA Charitable Rollovers allows donors to maximize charitable contributions while still minimizing their AGI when transferring to qualified public charities like MSU Denver. Contact Lori Herrera to inquire about making your year-end rollover gift.
