Annual Giving at The University of Denver

The University of Denver is a place where great student and faculty minds study and debate the major issues of the day—and develop solutions for them. Thanks to the annual support of generations of alumni and friends, DU offers programs and opportunities providing students with an exceptional foundation to build their lives and careers. 

Strengthening the DU Experience

There are many components of the DU experience, including distinguished faculty, an exceptional and diverse student body, an unparalleled residential community, and incredible classroom, laboratory, and athletic resources. This broad spectrum of opportunity, and the transformative experience it creates, are made possible through support of the Chancellor’s Innovation Fund.

The Chancellor’s Innovation Fund is a vital source of institutional momentum for the University of Denver and the primary way for alumni, parents, and friends to help sustain the special features that set DU apart. A successful Chancellor’s Innovation Fund is essential to DU’s enduring excellence.

Chancellor’s Innovation Fund Priority Projects

Your gift to the Chancellor’s Innovation Fund provides an essential bridge between endowment and tuition revenue and the University’s operating budget. One of DU’s top Chancellor’s Innovation Fund priorities is the Academic Commons at Penrose Library project, an initiative revolutionizing the configuration of the current library and redefining its existing infrastructure, but you may direct your gift to the program or project of your choice.
