Support the Annual Fund

Commencement CrowdGifts to the Annual Fund allow MSU Denver to provide extraordinary opportunities for learning and discovery. They also extend the financial aid program to every student who needs it while helping meet emerging needs and challenges.

Unrestricted gifts are especially valuable to MSU Denver, because they allow the University to allocate funds wherever the needs are greatest and to take advantage of new opportunities. Your contribution may support financial aid operations, innovations in teaching, research equipment, facilities and
much more. 

Directed gifts allow you to designate your gift to a specific school or program. When you make a directed gift to MSU Denver, you enjoy the satisfaction of knowing you are supporting a program that is personally meaningful.

Ways to Give Annually

Tribute and Memorial Gifts 

Any gift to Metropolitan State University of Denver can be designated to pay tribute to or memorialize an important person in your life. These designations might acknowledge a teacher, mentor, family member, friend, colleague or loved one. Making a tribute or memorial gift to MSU Denver is a great way to ensure that a person’s influence and legacy is honored.


A charitable contribution of long-term appreciated securities (i.e. stocks, bonds and/or mutual funds that have realized significant appreciation over time) is one of the most tax-efficient of all ways to give. Making a gift of securities in lieu of or in addition to cash offers you the chance to support the University while realizing many important benefits for yourself.

Real Estate

A charitable contribution of real estate—whether it is your personal residence, vacation home, farm, commercial real estate or vacant land—can make a meaningful impact at MSU Denver. You can give real estate as an outright gift or as a gift through your estate.

Faculty and Staff Giving

MSU Denver faculty and staff give in a variety of ways and for a variety of reasons. Every gift, regardless of size, makes a difference to the University, and your participation speaks volumes. For your convenience, you can also contribute through payroll deduction.
