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 least state funding per student. Our availability to offer access to educational opportunities depends on everyone’s support and generosity.

Day of Giving

Join fellow Roadrunners for the seventh annual MSU Denver Day of Giving on April 11! 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.

More MSU Denver students will gain career-readiness training thanks to recent gift

The Classroom to Career Hub (C2 Hub) at Metropolitan State University of Denver received a financial contribution from the Morgridge Family Foundation this month that will help take the program to new heights.

The $1.5 million gift will support the planned construction of a four-story, 25,000-square-foot space that would allow the C2 Hub to better serve the career development of approximately 17,000 MSU Denver students and 11,000 Community College of Denver students annually.

By engaging students, faculty members and industry partners to design and implement career-readiness programs and services, the C2 Hub produces the skilled talent Colorado employers need.

Gifts to the C2 Hub can be made here.

‘Transformational gift’ to support new health-education facility, career program

Plans to expand health education at Metropolitan State University of Denver got a big boost this month, thanks to a “transformational gift” by the CEO of a leading financial institution.

Financial support from Mariner and Megan Kemper, the Kemper family and the UMB Financial Corp. Charitable Foundation will help MSU Denver kick off a capital campaign to construct a building housing the University’s Health Institute, a collaboration of 10 health-related departments across campus that aims to bolster the state’s health care workforce while closing access gaps.

In addition to supporting the new Health Institute, the three-part gift will seed an endowed deanship for the new College of Health and Human Sciences and support the construction of the Classroom to Career Hub (C2 Hub), a University program that provides professional development and career-planning services to its students.
