REACH A GOAL ahead of schedule, and you raise the goal.

That’s what CSU Pueblo recently did with its largest comprehensive fundraising campaign, called Drive. The university’s foundation neared its 10-year fundraising goal of $100 million in just three years and hiked its goal to $135 million by 2028. Now, the campaign is aptly called OverDrive.

Donations will support educational access and affordability for students; world-class learning experiences and environments; and increased academic quality. The additional $35 million raised with OverDrive will fund student aid.

CSU Pueblo has an enrollment of more than 3,500 and a mission of helping students improve their lives while fulfilling regional workforce and economic development needs. The university is federally designated as a Hispanic-Serving Institution, meaning it has a high percentage of Hispanic students and qualifies for grants to improve educational opportunities, academic quality, and student success.
