More than 100 visitors last week helped members of the CU Advancement team celebrate their new offices, just south of Broomfield’s Interlocken business park.
CU President Bruce Benson and his wife, Marcy, were among those greeting well-wishers and touring the 20,000-square-foot office suite on the second floor of 10901 W. 120th Ave., 1 mile west of the Wadsworth Boulevard interchange on U.S. 36.
Attendees on Dec. 4 enjoyed food and beverages while admiring views of the nearby Flatirons and catching up with 60 Advancement team members from the Broomfield location and several CU campuses. About 70 percent of Broomfield office staff serve Advancement under auspices of the CU System, with the remainder being under jurisdiction of its partner CU Foundation.
“We’re a centralized brain for the CU Advancement operation,” said Associate Vice President Patrick Kramer of the office. Processing of gifts and operation of the fund for CU annual giving program are among several operations sited at the Broomfield offices, which opened Sept. 29 after moving from Boulder.
Among the team’s numbers from the past year as highlighted in material handed out at the open house:
- 66,176 gifts processed
- 317,927 direct mail pieces sent for annual giving solicitations
- 309 marketing communication requests
