CSU-Pueblo Foundation

The CSU-Pueblo Foundation recently hosted our annual President’s Soiree in February, honoring our new and advancing President’s Club members. The President’s Soiree is our way of thanking all of you who support CSU-Pueblo and the more than 4,500 students we serve.

As we enter into the new year, the “On The Move” campaign remains our number one priority. The three-year, $25 million effort will benefit student scholarships, assist in the remodel and expansion of the Joseph Occhiato University Center, and increase the number of varsity sports offered by the Department of Athletics.

Thanks to a very generous gift from Art & Lorraine Gonzales, “On The Move” has generated more than $9.4 million in donations and pledges. The Gonzales’ have named the CSU-Pueblo student athlete scholarship fund as a benefactor in their $2.7 million charitable remainder trust. The gift is in addition to the $1 million pledge Michael Occhiato and his sister Joyce have made to benefit the OUC remodel.

CSU-Pueblo is very lucky and blessed to have individuals like Art and Lorraine, along with Michael and Joyce. We also feel very blessed and lucky to have of the support of all of our donors. Whether you give $100, or $100 million, each gift makes a significant impact on the lives of our students.  A college degree is a life changing event that makes a difference, not only with the student and their family, but with the community where that student resides.

Thanks for all you do for CSU-Pueblo.
Todd Kelly, President/CEO
