Parent Giving

From move-in through graduation and beyond, parents play a vital role in providing support that enriches the CU Boulder student experience. Giving opportunities are available at all levels through the Office of Parent Giving and Boulder Advancement Programs. Thank you!

Parent Fund at CU Boulder

  • Donors to the Parent Fund provide direct support for Student Affairs to help students build positive relationships, develop and sustain healthy lifestyles, and find personal and academic support. At CU Boulder, the Division of Student Affairs is committed to holistic student success. As the campus-wide leader for health and wellness, we envision a campus where every student feels welcome, safe, seen and heard. Your gift to the Parent Fund directly supports this important work. 

  • This academic year, a family has generously pledged a $1 million matching gift to the Parent Fund. The family's challenge gift will support student mental health and wellness programs that bolster prevention, intervention and assessment at CU Boulder - such as clinicians in the schools and colleges, and access to virtual wellness support. The overall goal for the fund is $2 million, all of which will fund Student Affairs' health and wellness programs. With your gift this year, you can help us reach this audacious goal and invest in the well-being of CU Boulder students. Give Now

  • For parents who want to get more involved, the Parent Leadership Society offers next level giving opportunities. The Parent Leadership Society (PLS) is a group of donors dedicated to creating community among CU Boulder parents around the country. To join the PLS, families give $2,500 or more annually to the Parent Fund. PLS families make leadership contributions to the Parent Fund, build a strong CU Boulder parent community and engage in activities that deepen their relationship with CU and the Division of Student Affairs. Learn more about the PLS. 

  • Parents support CU Boulder students in a variety of ways across Boulder Advancement Programs, including scholarships, naming opportunities, endowments, program support as well as planned giving. Contact us today and we can help you make an impact at CU Boulder.
