Planned giving

Planned gifts can be a significant benefit to you, your family, and Colorado State. Bequests, charitable gift annuities, and charitable remainder trusts offer donors a variety of ways to support the University.

Gifts of securities

CSU Foundation is happy to accept gifts of stocks, bonds, mutual funds, or other securities. Some donors may even accrue tax advantages for donating appreciated securities. Please consult with your tax advisor to determine tax-deductibility of your gift.

Gifts are valued based on the average of the high and low prices on the day the securities are received in CSU Foundation accounts or at CSU Foundation offices.

Gifts of real estate

Donated homes, land, and other types of real estate can help Colorado State University reach its goals.

Gifts in kind

A gift of personal property includes equipment, inventory, books, works of art, or other tangible property. Gifts of personal property are accepted by Colorado State University. Gifts-in-kind will be used to benefit the college, department, or center as designated by the donor.

Acceptance of the gift is based on whether Colorado State University can use the gift in furtherance of its mission. Consideration will be given to the cost of accepting and maintaining the gift as well as costs associated with potential resale of the gift.

Depending upon the donor’s tax circumstances, a charitable deduction may be claimed if the gift is accepted for the University’s tax-exempt purposes. If a donor is going to claim a deduction of more than $5,000, IRS Form 8283 is required.

If you are interested in pursuing this type of gift, please call (866) CSU-GIVE.

CSU Employee Giving

Who knows better about the promise of higher education and the ideals practiced at Colorado State University than the people who work there, ensuring the University’s continued success? That’s why employee giving is so important. Our gifts show our commitment to Colorado State and its mission to lead the way in groundbreaking research, life-changing outreach, and access to all qualified students.

Faculty and staff can now review their giving histories online through our new CSU Donor Connect. You can also use it to create a new payroll deduction, change a deduction, or make a gift. Giving has never been easier!

Employer matching gifts

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will double or even triple any charitable contributions made by their employees. If your company is eligible, request a matching gift form from your employer, and send it completed and signed with your gift. We will do the rest. Some companies even match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses.
