An Example From DU

Clayton and Christine PowersSetting up a scholarship was a meaningful way for Clayton Powers and Christine Peacock Powers to give future students the same opportunity the couple had with their University of Denver education.

State support enabled Christine to attend Hope College in Michigan and eventually earn a graduate degree at DU, where she benefited from the personal attention offered in a private school setting. Without scholarships his junior and senior years, Clayton says he would not have been able to attend DU.

When it came time to consider how to give back, the couple set up a scholarship primarily serving middle-income students. The couple established the scholarship using securities—an easy and efficient way to show support that also provides tax benefits. The Powers look forward to seeing firsthand the results of their generosity at DU.

“This is our way of impacting one individual at a time,” Christine says. “We do a lot of volunteer work, but usually we impact a large group on those projects. Here we’re trying to help one person get through and have that quality education that we think is so important.”
