Support Student Programs

Each year, more than 2,500 University of Denver students participate in intramural sports, club sports and the Alpine Club. Through this participation, students become more engaged on the University of Denver campus, make new friends and gain lifelong leadership skills.

As student organizations, club sport teams and the Alpine Club receive an allocation of student fees. However, this funding represents just a fraction of their total cost of participation. Teams also collect member dues, fundraise and make individual contributions to cover their costs of participation.

We invite you to join our club sport and Alpine Club members in making a donation to support DU’s student programs. Your gift will fund competitive entry fees, provide for safer travel options, reduce the cost of participation, and support the increased competitiveness and success of our students.

Currently, our greatest needs exist within the following programs:

  • Alpine Club – establishing an annual $45,000 fund to support more affordable travel options for more than 30 annual trips
  • Club Men’s Ice Hockey – establishing an annual $75,000 regional and national travel fund to support required competition outside of Colorado
  • Club Men’s Rugby – establishing an annual $60,000 travel fund to support regional and national competition

To make a gift to one of our student programs, visit our online giving website or complete a donor form (PDF).
