Support GSSW

Why should you give to GSSW?

Our work is science with intent—science for action. Science that is actualizing social work’s transformative potential to provide better health and well-being for all. Your support makes all of this a reality for our faculty and students.

GSSW faculty members are living the GSSW mission through their research and scholarship. This includes the Butler Institute for Families, the Bridge Project, the Institute for Human-Animal Connection, the Center for Effective Interventions and the Burnes Center on Poverty and Homelessness, which engage communities locally, nationally and internationally to develop solutions across a range of social issues.

Support the Graduate School of Social Work to create a stronger Colorado and a more sustainable, just and equitable world where all people can thrive. You choose where your donation is directed. You can:

  • Fund faculty innovation
  • Provide scholarships for MSW students
  • Enrich the student experience
  • Broaden our community impact
