Countdown to Socktober!

Show your Roadrunner pride down to your toes with a gift supporting student success.

Socktober graphicFall is in the air, which means the third annual Metropolitan State University of Denver Socktober giving event is right around the corner.

Last year, 307 generous donors made gifts totaling more than $15,000 to the Student Emergency Fund, DREAMer Emergency Fund and Roadrunner Food Pantry, bringing the two-year Socktober total to over $30,000. This year, MSU Denver needs your help to build on our success and continue supporting our most vulnerable students as they pursue their dream of earning a degree at the University.

For every gift of $25 ($15 is tax-deductible) you make to the Student Emergency Fund, DREAMer Emergency Fund or Roadrunner Food Pantry during the month of Socktober (Oct. 1-31), you will receive one pair of limited-edition MSU Denver socks and another pair will be donated to a student in need. A limited number of sock bundles with previous-year designs will also be available to help you complete your collection.

Get ready to show your Roadrunner pride this fall by making a gift during Socktober, and together, we can ensure that MSU Denver students have the resources they need to reimagine a future where anything is possible.
