Heritage Society

Our Gratitude

The University of Colorado is both inspired by and grateful for the legacy gifts that Heritage Society members provide to support CU. Thank you to those who have shared their hopes and dreams with us. We recognize that the future is unknown and that plans change. Still, we welcome those who have informed CU of their plans for future gifts to become members of the CU Heritage Society, a prestigious group of supporters who engage in meaningful ways across our CU campuses.

A Creative Twist on Our Annual Luncheon in 2020

While we were saddened to cancel our annual CU Heritage Society luncheon due to the global coronavirus pandemic, the safety and health of our members remains our top priority. Until we can meet again, please enjoy this personal video message below from CU President Mark Kennedy (and a few surprise guests).

This year, 70 new members joined the CU Heritage Society, and are receiving a customized photo puzzle. In addition, 12 members were chosen at random to receive a special delivery of beautiful flowers, honoring our annual luncheon tradition of giving away the event's floral centerpieces.

Celebrating Our CU Heritage Society Members

Here are some of our favorite memories from previous Heritage Society Luncheons, as well as photos from some of our lucky floral delivery winners this year.

Making an Impact
