1864 Pinnacle Society

A lifetime contribution of $1 million or more 

The University of Denver's circle of support has been a constant since its founding in 1864. The commitment of those cornerstone donors is reflected today, more than a century and a half later, in the philanthropy of the 1864 Pinnacle Society. By powering DU's reach and relevance with their strong, sustained giving, these partners are transforming passion into purpose.

Their commitment to extraordinary higher education, and their willingness to further the careers and life contributions of future students, is recognized with inclusion in this Society.
