Endowments

Your endowment gift leaves a permanent legacy for our students and University. Your generosity will enhance Regis’ ability to provide a transformative Jesuit education at the frontiers of faith, reason, and culture.

Endowed funds are invested “in perpetuity”, whereby the earnings from the principal are used annually to support your chosen priorities. The minimum amount required to establish an endowed fund at Regis is $50,000.

Endowed gifts may be designated to impact a specific college, program, or area of the University, or may remain unrestricted to meet the most critical needs of Regis. Many donors choose to name endowments in order to honor a family member, a Regis professor, or to create a personal legacy.

Planned Giving

As Regis navigates this moment of profound uncertainty and change, our Ranger community has inspired us by rallying together to support our students in need. We hope you will consider joining them.

There are many ways you can invest in our students and the University. As you consider your options, we invite you to look at including Regis as a beneficiary of your will or other estate plans. Your income today is not affected, and your gift is certain to make a lasting impact on future Regis Rangers. Click here to learn how.

For more information, please contact the Office of Gift Planning at 303.964.5152.

Faculty and Staff Giving

As a member of our faculty and staff, you are the reason many of our students chose Regis for their education. The knowledge you share with them not only ensures their success in the classroom, but prepares them for a life of service and meaning upon graduation.

You can do even more to support our students with a gift to Regis. Here are some impactful examples of what a Regis gift can accomplish:

  • Open the door for a student’s intellectual and spiritual discovery by funding need or merit-based scholarships
  • Support the Regis Cupboard which provides canned food and shelf-stable necessities for food-insecure or homeless students
  • Strengthen faculty and staff development through programs like The Ignatian Advising Program
  • Support academic centers and research

It’s easy to make your gift. You may give online or setup a payroll deduction by filling out the form here.  

Already have a payroll deduction set up and want to do more? You can also use the form below to change your gift amount. If you would like to cancel your payroll deduction, please contact Shelly Parchman, senior payroll specialist, at sparchma@regis.edu or 303.964.5345.
