In order to achieve the mission of Colorado Christian University–to serve God by providing Christ-centered higher education–CCU relies on committed partners who invest in the work of this great university.
Please consider how you might partner with CCU in preparing students for a lifetime of service, leadership, and discipleship.
The Beckman Scholarship Annual Fund
CCU’s Beckman Scholarship Annual Fund provides much-needed scholarships for students. Approximately 95 percent of CCU’s College of Undergraduate Studies students depend on some form of financial aid in order to make a CCU education possible, and contributions to the Beckman Scholarship Annual Fund are essential for attracting and retaining the best students. During the 2012–2013 academic year, CCU will award approximately $8 million in scholarships to deserving students who will go out and transform the world in the name of Jesus Christ.
Endowed scholarships enable supporters to create an ongoing investment in CCU. Endowed scholarships often carry a family name or are named in honor or in memory of a beloved faculty and community member. Endowed scholarships may be established with gifts of $20,000 or more, and they provide scholarships through interest generated annually on the principal amount.
Endowed scholarships are frequently funded by gifts of cash, but they may also be funded by transfers of stocks, bonds, mutual funds, real estate, and other types of property. Gifts toward endowed scholarships may also be made by bequest. Please contact the Office of Development for additional information or assistance.
Colorado Christian University is excited to be moving forward with a complete redevelopment of the Lakewood campus. Although the most important quality remains the life-change and student development that occurs inside the classroom walls, we are grateful to begin this new phase in the life of the University. The 8-10 year total campus redevelopment project will cost in excess of $100 million with more than $55 million anticipated from charitable gifts. Financial gifts of all sizes can be given to support the redevelopment project and the Faith|Family|Freedom Campaign.
Current Projects Include:
Planned gifts are commonly made through revocable trusts or wills, through annuities that provide lifetime income to the donor, and through more complex gifts of real estate and tax-deferred retirement assets. Planned gifts are favorable because of the financial flexibility and tax benefits they provide. Please visit CCU’s planned giving website for additional information about estate planning for your wills, trusts, or other estate planning needs.
One of the greatest ways to support Colorado Christian University is through prayer. Our students, faculty, and staff rely daily on the provision and grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. Alumni and friends, please remember these requests as you pray for CCU:
