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 Center for Housing and Homelessness Research, 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

GSSW Student Emergency Fund

As GSSW responds to the unprecedented and fast-moving COVID-19 crisis, it has become clear that our students are facing unmet needs and unexpected financial burdens. We are dedicated to doing what we can to mitigate this hardship for GSSW’s students. We have been able to be nimble, and utilize our student emergency fund for just this purpose. The Margaret Page Student Emergency Fund is GSSW's resource to help our students' unique needs. This scholarship fund provides emergency support for GSSW students' imminent needs, including food assistance, rent and utility expenses, and medical expenses.
