University Advancement is proud to announce a new giving society that will recognize faculty and staff who support University programs and students — and you might already be a member.

Introducing: The Marathon Society.

What is the Marathon Society?

The Marathon Society is a new way of thanking the 303 dedicated donors – of whom 189 are faculty and staff members – who have committed to making a recurring gift, through payroll deduction or a regularly scheduled credit-card gift, to the MSU Denver Foundation in support of MSU Denver students and programs.

Why is it called the Marathon Society?

A group of roadrunners is known as a marathon, making “Marathon Society” a fitting name for our donors who participate in recurring giving.

Why is it important to be a member of the Marathon Society?

Recurring giving is a commitment to MSU Denver for the long run.

During FY17, Marathon Society members contributed more than $95,000 to about 114 MSU Denver scholarship and program funds. Those funds supported students across the campus community, resulting in increased student retention and a record number of graduates. When you become a member of the Marathon Society, your gift provides a reliable source of funding that transforms lives, communities and higher education, and prepares our students for lifelong success.

If you are already a member of the Marathon Society, thank you for your support! We encourage you to take this opportunity to increase your monthly deduction as a way to expand the reach and impact of your recurring gift.

If you are not a member of the Marathon Society, sign up for payroll deduction today and join the 189 MSU Denver faculty and staff members who are already choosing to run with us. It is what we accomplish together that transforms the lives of so many.
