The 40-page Fall 2013 issue of Creating Futures magazine, produced by the CU Office of Advancement, tells stories of philanthropy throughout the University of Colorado, and celebrates the conclusion of CU’s $1.5 billion Creating Futures fundraising campaign with a special Campaign Wrap. Feature subjects in the magazine (viewable either in zMags format or via PDF) include:
- The Jake Jabs Center for Entrepreneurship at CU Denver, bolstered now with a $10 million gift from furniture entrepreneur Jake Jabs
- The Earth Microbiome Project, whose foundational work at CU-Boulder is enhanced by two major grants earlier this year
- Expanded veteran health and trauma initiatives at UCCS, thanks to a $2 million gift from Lyda Hill
- A major bequest by a New Mexico professor drawn to CU by the caliber of the Anschutz Medical Campus’s molecular biology program
The biannual magazine was developed in 2011 to tell stories underlying the Creating Futures campaign—which began in 2006 to enhance learning and teaching, discovery and innovation, community and culture, and health and wellness throughout the University of Colorado. The campaign’s conclusion was announced Nov. 21, with more than 400,000 gifts and more than $1.521 billion in private support since its inception.
