Give to Engagement & Extension
With you, we will create lasting impact
Join us in delivering CSU’s land grant mission: that anyone, anywhere can access the world-class educational programs, services, and resources generated by one of the nation’s top public research universities. We are so grateful to you, our donors, who ensure that CSU’s work is informed by and responsive to the needs of Coloradans.
The Impact of Giving
Whether opening degree pathways for non-traditional students through online coursework, partnering with farmers and ranchers on 21st century agriculture solutions, or sparking curiosity in learners across identities, your gift helps us empower individuals and communities to thrive.

When you support the Office of Engagement and Extension, you support interdisciplinary teams tackling real-world challenges.
Our work is organized around five engagement collaboratives – a network to help us come together, facilitate connections, and collaborate on critical issues. These five core themes are central to the needs of Coloradans:
- Health & Well-being
- Youth & Family
- Economic & Community Development
- Natural Resources & Sustainability
- Food & Agriculture
Each of our units touches on each of these collaboratives – our development staff would be thrilled to connect you with a program or project that matches your passion.
