Personal donations are crucial to our ability to our mission of offering the best possible educational experience to our students that we can. The University of Colorado is a public institution that receives little support from the state of Colorado. All of our undergraduate fellowships are funded through the generosity of donors like yourself. Donations also make it possible for us to increase the number of visiting speakers we can bring to campus; these benefit both the academic community and the general public.
Please consider contributing to a specific program area (below) or giving to the general department fund. We greatly appreciate donations of all sizes, as they testify to your faith in us to educate your children – the next generation of business leaders, teachers, parents, artists –in the humane understandings of life that literature conveys.
