As the new academic year approaches at Colorado State
University-Pueblo, the CSU-Pueblo Foundation is preparing for our one-year
anniversary of the announcement of the On The Move Campaign.
The campaign is a three-year, $25 million fundraising
effort to help increase scholarships for CSU-Pueblo students ($15 million),
assist with the remodel and enlargement of the Joseph M. Occhiato University Center
($5 million), and to expand the department of athletics ($5 million).
As of today, the campaign has generated more than $10.5 million
is contributions, pledges and anticipated gifts. This amount equates to more than 40% of the campaign goal.
We have made great progress with the campaign, but we still have
a long way to go and we need everyone’s help to reach our goal.
Every gift we receive, no matter the size, makes a big
impact on our students. A gift of $100 provides eight hours of tutoring to a
CSU-Pueblo student and a gift of $500 provides books for a semester to one
student, just as an example.
Every dollar we raise for student scholarship is a dollar
invested in the future of our students, the Pueblo economy, and the southern
hope you will consider making a gift to the On The Move Campaign and to help
change the lives of our students.Todd Kelly, President/CEO
