A Legacy of Great Stories

Great Stories Begin Here. They have for more than 100 years. Upon its founding in 1921, Adams State University dedicated itself to providing equitable access to education for all. Adams State University promotes successful and engaged lives by caring for, connecting with, and challenging our students, campus, and community. As Colorado’s premier Hispanic Serving Institution, Adams State University draws on its rural location in the San Luis Valley to serve and empower all students, especially those from historically underserved populations.

Your generous gifts to the Foundation help ensure the University’s continued success in fulfilling its mission to provide equitable access to education for all. In partnership with our generous alumni and friends, the Foundation provides critical support in the form of scholarships, other restricted funds, and general operational dollars. Together we are creating opportunities for social mobility through the transformation power of higher education.

NEW for 2024: Higher ACGA rates could mean more income for you.

There are many planned gifts that won’t affect your existing financial resources, but will have a significant impact on Adams State University Foundation. Give to the institution you care so much about, while maintaining control and flexibility.
