Giving to UCCS

Your Passion. Our Mission

We are encouraging donors to make gifts online due to the campus being closed December 25th 2023 through January 1st 2024. Checks can be made payable to the “University of Colorado Foundation” with the fund name in the memo line, and mailed through USPS to University Development, 1420 Austin Bluffs Parkway, Colorado Springs, CO 80918. All envelopes delivering checks must be clearly postmarked before December 31, 2023 to receive 2023 tax credit.

For any additional questions, contact (719) 255-5100 or email development@uccs.edu and a Development staff member will respond as soon as possible.
