24 hours to give where you live

We are rallying around Colorado’s own Colorado Gives Day, which is today, to encourage your philanthropic support of our students and programs.

The Tuesday after Thanksgiving has come to be known as #GivingTuesday, in line with Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday. We took it one step further last year and made that day our own by renaming the event Roadrunner Tuesday to encourage alumni, community supporters, faculty, staff and even students to consider giving back to MSU Denver.

This year, thanks to all who participated in Roadrunner Tuesday last week, we raised more than $6,000 to support student scholarships at MSU Denver.

For those of you who missed out on Roadrunner Tuesday, we are rallying around Colorado’s own Colorado Gives Day – TODAY – to encourage your philanthropic support of our students and programs. This year is the sixth anniversary of #CoGivesDay, which is an “annual statewide movement to celebrate and increase philanthropy in Colorado through online giving.”

What makes this opportunity so special is that all gifts made to MSU Denver through the Colorado Gives website during this 24-hour window will be boosted by the $1 Million Incentive Fund, which provides additional support for every gift made today.

Whatever your passion – whether the Family Literacy Program, Roadrunner Athletics, student scholarships, capital projects, or a specific college, school or department – your gift to MSU Denver will help more and more students run their own road to success.

Help us surpass our total raised last year – $18,000 – on #CoGivesDay by making your gift to support our students and programs through the link below.

Go Roadrunners and thank you for all that you do to support MSU Denver and our students.
