The University of Colorado Advancement System office’s 2019 Impact Report to Donors, titled “We’re in this together,” shows how essential the partnership between donors and CU is to our communities, Colorado and the world.
Published last week, “We’re in this together” uses feature stories and financials reports to highlight examples of CU partnerships that are powered by philanthropy. The annual impact report is a collaborative effort among partners across CU’s four campuses, the CU Foundation and CU System Advancement.
The report features the following impact stories, all of which were made possible through the incredible generosity of CU donors.
- CU Anschutz researchers and students are collaborating with local schools, hospitals and community organizations to study asthma and help one Colorado neighborhood breathe a little easier.
- A CU Boulder graduate is exploring how solar flares affect our daily lives, thanks to a scholarship that helped her discover a future as a scientist and researcher.
- CU Denver faculty and students use engineering and design to develop innovative technology that helps improve the lives of people with disabilities.
- A UCCS psychology professor’s innovative approach to clinical care and research about trauma is helping military veterans find hope and healing from the invisible wounds of war.
The financials section details important CU fundraising metrics, including gift and donor numbers, where donors direct their generosity, the performance of CU’s endowment and more.
