SOCKTOBER

This campaign ended on November 01, 2019, but you can still make a gift to Metropolitan State University of Denver by clicking here!

MSU Denver and YOU … a Perfect Pair!

Show your Roadrunner pride from head-to-toe with a pair of limited-edition MSU Denver socks when you make a gift of $25 ($15 is tax-deductible) to the Student Emergency Fund during SOCKTOBER. For every $25 gift you make, you will receive one pair of socks AND one pair of socks will be donated to a student in need.

According to a recent survey of MSU Denver students:

  • 40% were food insecure in the prior 30 days; 
  • 55% were housing insecure in the previous year.
  • 18% were homeless in the previous year.

Your gift to SOCKTOBER and the Student Emergency Fund would help support these students. The Student Emergency Fund supports current MSU Denver students who are dealing with homelessness or housing insecurities, unemployment, unexpected medical bills and more. Your gift will directly support a student in need as they continue on their journey to achieving the American dream of earning a college degree.

A small act of kindness can have a huge impact on the life of an MSU Denver student. Share a pair of socks during SOCKTOBER and warm the feet of fellow Roadrunners so they can continue to Run with Us

“After getting sick during the middle of the semester and taking a few days off from work, I realized my work-study paycheck would not be enough to pay rent or fill my empty refrigerator. The Student Emergency Fund provided the help I needed to pay rent, buy groceries and focus on regaining my health so I could focus on finishing out the semester strong. I am deeply grateful for the help.”  – Nalinda, Class of 2020
