The Importance of Annual Giving

Annual gifts from trustees, alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and friends provide the basis for the everyday work of Naropa, as well as for many special initiatives. Annual giving from individuals is one of the most important sources of funding for Naropa University. It allows us to meet the ongoing needs of the university as we deliver an extraordinary education to our students.

Annual gifts support vital programs such as need-based scholarships for both undergraduate and graduate students, improving student services, enhancing faculty development, and improving our facilities and grounds.

There are many ways to make an annual gift:

  • Gifts of cash
  • Gifts of securities
  • Matching gifts

Your annual gift will provide Naropa the greatest flexibility in supporting our mission to infuse students with knowledge and wisdom in a contemplative educational environment.
