DU’s Division of Athletics and Recreation proudly supports local schools and their efforts to continually increase the quality of our local education.

Our involvement in school communities stems from our educational foundation and our desire to make a positive difference in the community we serve. Each year, we provide more than $3,000 in donations to local schools.

Donation Requests

If you would like to request an auction item for your school, please complete our online form. Donation requests are reviewed on the first and 15th day of each month.

Requests must be submitted at least 60 days before an event. Awards will be based on need, nature of event, location of organization, audience and availability.

Organizations are eligible to receive one donation in a 12-month period. Additional requests may be considered but are not guaranteed.

Please note: We are unable to provide donations to the following organizations:

  • individuals or personal requests
  • political organizations
  • organizations outside a 20-mile radius of the University of Denver
  • athletic programs
  • youth sports teams and leagues
