Heritage Society

The Heritage Society was established by the University of Colorado Foundation in honor of alumni, faculty, staff and friends who have made a commitment to the future of the University of Colorado. Their gifts include life income arrangements, bequests through a will, revocable living trust, retirement plan and other planned gifts.

The generosity of these donors allows the university to create endowed chairs and professorships, student scholarships, fellowships and awards, and other educational and academic programs throughout CU campuses. In addition, significant improvements in facilities, teaching, research and student support have been made possible by these legacies.

With a grateful nod to past philanthropy that supports CU, President Bruce Benson said he believes that donors who make planned gifts to CU ensure future university priorities flourish.

“I can’t thank you enough for everything you do for the University of Colorado,” Benson told more than 200 donors at an April 21 luncheon at the Denver Botanic Gardens. “I guarantee future leaders of this university will be glad.”
