Colorado College was founded in 1874. The College established its first permanent endowment for the "support of instruction" (under the leadership of President Slocum) on February 24, 1890, after receiving the first $25,000 of a request to the citizens of Colorado, made by President Slocum. As a result of the continued generosity of the College's donors, the endowment portfolio has evolved into a robust portfolio which provides support for current and future students of Colorado College.
