Make a Financial Contribution
Financial donations are critical to maintaining a high quality program and for providing program access to students who face financial challenges. You can make a financial contribution to the CU in D.C. Program Fund or to the CU in D.C. Scholarship Fund. Donations made to the Program Fund go toward things like student recruitment, program materials, and program operating costs. Donations made to the Scholarship Fund are used to award need-based and merit-based scholarships to students. For some students, these scholarships offer them access to the program and offer them an opportunity they otherwise would not have had. You can make a contribution to either of these funds here. Thank you in advance for your generosity and support of our students!
Other Ways to Contribute
There are numerous non-monetary ways to support CU in D.C. students. You can offer your time, expertise, or leadership to students in a variety of ways and these contributions add great value and enrichment to the students’ D.C. experience. One way to assist students is by offering an internship at your business, agency, or organization. Or, you can connect a student with D.C. contacts or internship possibilities. If you can offer an internship or have internship contacts/know about internship possibilities, please contact Vicki Hunter at email@example.com or 303-492-6214. If you are a professional or an academic and have knowledge or expertise in a specific field or profession, you can support students by coming into our D.C. office and speaking on a particular topic. This will give students the opportunity to learn from your experience, to ask you questions, and to be exposed to professional options and possibilities. If you live in the D.C. area and want to volunteer your time, you could take the students on a weekend trip, host a dinner at your home, or guide students on a tour of a special site, building, or organization. If you would like to come in to speak on a topic or if you would like to host an event for students, please contact Ken Bickers at Kenneth.Bickers@colorado.edu or 303-492-2363. We welcome and value your contributions to CU in D.C. students and thank you in advance for your support!
