Employee Gifts

Help Strengthen Our University

The talent, knowledge, energy and heart our faculty bring to DU have made us what we are today, and are crucial factors guiding us into the future. That focus on the future is exemplified by our faculty and staff's willingness to add to our ongoing efforts by contributing financially.

Gifts from our faculty and staff members provide financial support to our campus and programs. Those gifts demonstrate to alumni, community members and friends the commitment we all share to DU's mission and ideals.

Philanthropy gains momentum from the inside out. The more who give, the more our commitment to the University is demonstrated to the alumni, family, friends and outside funding agencies whose generosity will power DU into the future.

Ways to Give


Payroll Deduction

Making your gift through payroll deduction enables you to split your gift into installments, spreading it over as many or as few pay periods as you wish. Payroll deduction makes giving quick and easy to budget.
