Top Priorities

We hope that you will make the DU Parent & Family Fund one of your top philanthropic priorities. All gifts, regardless of amount, make a direct and immediate impact on each and every DU student.

We encourage you to consider unrestricted support of the university's highest priorities through a gift to one of our annual fund categories.

  • The DU Scholarship Fund creates opportunities by helping bridge the need-gap for talented students from diverse backgrounds.

  • The DU Academic Program Fund empowers students and faculty to reach their full potential by providing essential academic resources like top-notch faculty and state-of-the-art technology.

  • The Campus Life Fund supports over 100 student organizations and support services like the Career Center – out of the classroom experiences that are essential for student success.

  • These days, agility is key. The Chancellor's Innovation Fund provides the University with the flexibility needed to quickly respond to emerging opportunities and immediate needs.

If you prefer, you may also direct your support toward a specific academic program, student life initiative, club, or athletic program. Either way, your gift—together with those of other parents and family members—makes a substantial impact on the University.
