Leadership Giving

Colorado Mesa University has undergone dramatic transformations. This growth and the reduction of funding from the State will require more private funding for capital and scholarships. Individuals willing to take the lead with donations and volunteering will become ever more important to continue to propel CMU forward.


The university will periodically undertake public campaigns to solicit charitable gifts to build stronger programs and facilities and to leverage state resources. Alumni, individuals, businesses and charitable foundations will be encouraged to support the campaign based on natural affinities and complementary interests.


Donors may create a named endowment with the CMU Foundation with a gift of $25,000 or more. The invested gift generates earnings that support scholarships or programs.

For more information on establishing an endowment at CMU, call the CMU Foundation's CEO, Robin Brown, at 970-248-1410 or email at [email protected].
