Development at the Leeds School of Business

Giving to the Leeds School of Business provides a direct impact on programs, student experiences and the continued tradition of the Leeds School of Business experience.

Why give to Leeds?

  • State funding covers just 4.2% of CU-Boulder’s annual operating budget.
  • Help support our students: more than 200 Leeds students received scholarships this academic year.
  • Last year, 5.4% of Leeds alumni made a gift to back to Leeds (and an additional 6% gave to other funds at CU-Boulder). Did you know that alumni giving participation affects rankings? Help CU move up the ladder!

The Dean's Society

Members of The Dean’s Society give leadership donations which create the spirit of philanthropy needed for the Leeds School of Business’s continued growth and success.
The Leeds School of Business is thriving because of annual private support given at a leadership level, designated by gifts of $1,000 or more. Without the continued growth of the number of gifts given at this level the Leeds School of Business could not reach its goal of becoming a top-25 ranked business school.
These gifts allow the Dean to focus resources on the people and programs that will have the most impact on students and alumni. Giving students real-world business exposure, connecting alumni with the Leeds School and its resources, and adding to the already outstanding curriculum are some of the ways that these funds are used.
The entrepreneurial spirit of the Leeds School of Business teaches our students to challenge, create. And act upon ideas and opportunities. Your leadership gift will ensure that these values continue to create futures here at the Leeds School.
In addition, your participation at the leadership level will allow you to benefit from a closer relationship with the Leeds School of Business through exclusive email communications and invitations to special events.
Please accept this opportunity to become a part of this influential group and join the leaders in The Dean’s Society today.
