Ways to Give

Making your contribution, leaving your legacy, or leveraging the contributions of fellow friends and donors can be as unique as your intention. Whether you make a gift in memory of a former professor, in honor of a renowned researcher, or in hopes of the future work of our students, you can make your gift in a number of ways.

Planned giving


If you want to leave your legacy through a planned gift, please visit the University of Colorado planned giving website. Designating the Colorado School of Public Health in your will is a great way to make a gift without impacting your current finances and lifestyle. Other gifts like annuities, trusts and IRA rollovers can provide significant tax savings to you. Common planned gift types include:

  • Bequests
  • Charitable gift annuities
  • Charitable remainder trusts
  • Real estate
  • Retirement accounts

Recurring gift


When you create a recurring gift, you support ColoradoSPH in a sustainable and convenient way.  To begin, select the fund you want to support, enter your gift amount and be sure to select “This is a recurring gift” within the form.

Support a current or endowed fund


If your intention is to support an existing program or cause, consider making a contribution to an existing fund or endowment.  Doing so will leverage your gift with the power of other donors who share your passion and intention.  This is the perfect way to illustrate the power of collaboration and coordination, something our school is well known for in academic and research programming.  

All gifts are made to the University of Colorado Foundation. The University of Colorado Foundation is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization that raises support for the benefit of the University of Colorado including the Colorado School of Public Health. Learn more at giving.cu.edu
