What is Women and Philanthropy?

Our Mission

Women and Philanthropy connects and empowers a broad community to elevate women and philanthropy at Colorado State University. We recognize the power of women and strive to connect them with their passions at CSU so that, through philanthropy, the world’s biggest challenges are solved.

How Women and Philanthropy Began

Women and Philanthropy was designed as University Advancement’s response to CSU’s 14th President, Tony Frank’s, charge to make CSU the best place for women to work and learn. Philanthropy is vital to the overall success of supporting this charge and the University’s land-grant mission.

With a minimum of a $50 annual gift to the fund(s) that connect to your heart, you are eligible to join Women and Philanthropy. Once you have made your gift, we invite you to join our community and connect with events, programs, and communications that highlight, celebrate, and elevate women and philanthropy at CSU.
