It has recently come to the attention of the University of Colorado that door-to-door magazine salespeople have been falsely representing themselves as members of a “CU orchestra” raising money for a trip to Europe. Colorado Springs is one of the cities in which these impostors have been spotted in recent weeks.

The CU Foundation does not solicit donations door-to-door, and these individuals are not representatives of the CU-Boulder College of Music, the university, or the CU Foundation. Individuals who would like to confirm that a gift was directed to the CU Foundation in support of legitimate university programs should call 303-541-1200.
