PUEBLO, Colo. (October 12, 2016) - Members of the Colorado State University-Pueblo community will join together for an extraordinary day of giving back, Thursday, Oct. 13.

The Colorado State University-Pueblo Foundation will focus on 15 initiatives across campus through a crowdfunding effort as part of its first Day of Giving on October 13. CSU-Pueblo has implemented a crowdfunding platform to help raise money for CSU-Pueblo students, academic programs and departments, athletic programs, and student organizations. The goal of the day is to have 300 individuals donate to CSU-Pueblo within a 24-hour time-frame. The CSU-Pueblo Foundation solicited interest for project fundraising from all University colleges and departments.
