You proved it April 21 during the annual Love Your State Day of Giving. Your generosity helped CSU surpass its goal for number of gifts during a memorable 24 hours.

“The outpouring of support for this Day of Giving was tremendous,” said Brett Anderson, vice president of University Advancement. “Our students, alumni and friends helped us surpass all of our goals for this day. Thank you to each and every donor who supported a fund here at Colorado State University that they care about. You are making a difference.”
