SUBJECT: Creating Futures Campaign Launch
Earlier this week, the University of Colorado announced the public phase of its
$1.5 billion Creating Futures fundraising campaign. This is an exciting moment
in the history of CU, and I am pleased to report we will be the first campus
holding a launch event when we celebrate the campaign announcement this Thursday, April 28.
The Creating Futures campaign will help us enhance our ability to redefine learning
and discovery in a global context to advance the economy, culture,
and health of Colorado and the nation. It provides us a unique opportunity to
inspire our supporters by demonstrating how their involvement in our strategic
efforts will help create brighter futures for communities in Colorado and
around the world.
The campaign will fund scholarships, provide faculty and program enhancements
through endowments and direct gifts, provide facility upgrades and new
buildings, and support research activities with private funding. CU-Boulder is
proud to be the university's largest campaign funding contributor to date.
I hope you will join us this Thursday starting at 3:30 p.m. for student
performances followed by speeches by CU President Benson, myself, and men's
basketball coach Tad Boyle. Food and drink will be provided. For event details
and to RSVP, please go to:
