How do I contribute to the Campaign?

  • 2010 Campaign Deadlines:

    One-time gifts via Credit card and check must be received by December 31, 2010 to be considered for the 2010 tax year.

    For payroll deductions taken in 2011, you must submit your pledge through the online tool by 5:00pm on Wednesday, January 5. After this date, you can still send a paper pledge form to Campus Box 584.

  • Give "Green" in 2010- All CU-Boulder campaign contributions are being taken through a secure site created just for State of Colorado employees. Visit the website to give via payroll donation, as well as for check and credit card one-time gifts. Have your Employee ID ready, as you will need to enter it to verify your pledge. If you don’t know your Employee ID, use your Identikey to log in to the My CU portal, and you will find you Employee ID number listed right after your name.
    Every contributor receives a confirmation email, so you can verify that your gift is accurate and timely.
