Thank You to our 2017 Honorees


Comcast, a global media and technology company, is partnering with the University of Colorado Denver to provide critical resources for media and technology students. This support provides students with technology, space and guest speakers to enhance their education in the College of Engineering and Applied Science and the College of Arts & Media. In addition to technology support, Comcast is helping military veterans transition from combat to classroom to community through a veterans’ emergency fund, tutoring services and other programs in the Office of Veteran & Military Student Services.

Daniels Fund:

The Daniels Fund is a strong supporter of the Addiction Research and Treatment Services (ARTS) program and the Center for Dependency, Addiction and Rehabilitation (CeDAR). These services are providing patient care to individuals struggling with addiction through residential and outpatient substance abuse treatment options. Simultaneously, the Daniels Fund is creating opportunities for students at CU Denver through the Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative at the Business School and the Daniels Fund Colloquia on Ethics in Communication presented by the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, as well as scholarships for students in the School of Education and Human Development, the College of Nursing and veterans across campus.

Joyce Zeff and the Zeff Family:

Joyce Zeff’s vision and generosity reached the entire Denver metro area, and her legacy lives on. With the support of the Zeff family, Mrs. Zeff created a named endowed chair in lung cancer research in gratitude for the high-quality care she received at the CU Anschutz Medical Campus. Her hope was that this funding would advance translational research, and allow breakthroughs in labs to reach patient bedsides quicker than ever before. This work promises to impact future generations of people battling cancer, making the impossible possible.
