This is a SPECIAL YEAR for our campaign benefiting CSU Youth Programs in Arts & Education.  A $20,000 Match Donation has been set up through the Jim Vidakovich Charitable Trust & Dick Vidakovich Memorial Fund.  (Dick was a 1978 CSU Graduate -BA Physical Education).

RAMFUNDER MATCH 2024: Your GIFT will be DOUBLED up to $20,000! 

(Example: Your $100 donation becomes $200 of impact toward meeting our goal)


Thank you for considering a gift to the Youth Programs in Arts & Education fund today! The Youth Programs in Arts & Education fund supports BRAINY (BRing Arts Integration to Youth), Middle School Outreach Ensemble (MSOE), and Trying on Teaching (ToT). These programs target underserved children and enrich the lives of hundreds of students from elementary to high school across Northern Colorado. They embody Colorado State University's mission as a land-grant institution by providing equal opportunity and equal access to the arts and music programming.

Your donation:  Investing in our future…the children


Each gift supporting the Youth Programs in Arts & Education fund puts us a step closer to our overall goal of raising over $30,000 for these essential arts and music education programs and exceeding our RAMFUNDER goal for the 4th consecutive year.

Detailed Program Information: Check out our program websites  BRAINYMSOE, and ToT.

Share this campaign with your friends and family and encourage them to participate! A special thanks and sincere appreciation from the children, teachers, and mentors, for your gift to Youth Programs in Arts & Education. Our success is because you care.

All donations to this project benefit the Youth Program in Arts & Education fund.
