CSU Employees Can Give Through Payroll Deduction

  • Credit card payments: CSU can accept donations using Discover, Mastercard, Visa or American Express online or by phone (970) 491-7135.
  • Donations by check: Write your check out to “CSU Foundation” with a memo indicating “School is Cool” and mail it to: Colorado State University Foundation, P. O. Box 1870, Fort Collins, CO 80522-1870.  If mailing checks from on-campus, mail to: Colorado State University Foundation, Campus Delivery 9100.

2. Become a Department Representative.

Volunteer to become a department, office, or college representative and devote only a few hours to this worthwhile cause. Department reps are essential to the success of this program. You’ll learn more about the program and receive materials and ideas for promoting School Is Cool to your co-workers and peers. Contact Farrah Bustamante for more information.

3. Volunteer your time.

Sign up to volunteer for a shift on August 6 – 8 to sort the supplies, stuff or deliver the packs. Because School Is Cool is considered an official University function, administrative and/or VIPS leave may be used with prior approval from your supervisor. School Is Cool is an excellent team-building opportunity to do with your co-workers. We’d love to have your help!
