Ways to Give

Capital Gifts

Gifts towards capital campaigns allow us to expand our facilities and provide the best environment for our student-athletes. There are Division- wide and sport-specific priorities opportunities to improve our facilities. As of 2018, the Division-wide priorities include:

  • Denver Tennis Park
  • Sports Medicine/Training Room Expansion & Renovation
  • Highlands Ranch Golf Clubhouse Expansion


The University of Denver Men's and Women's Tennis teams will soon have a new home at the Denver Tennis Park, a new $14 million public indoor/outdoor tennis facility which will be built in part thanks to two 1-million dollar gifts from Catherine "Cappy" (BFA '76, MBA '80) and Robert Shopneck (MA '73, JD '76), and Jane Hamilton and their families. The facility is the result of a groundbreaking public-private collaboration between the Denver Tennis park, Inc. a not for profit organization dedicated to serving Denver's youth, the University of Denver and Denver Public Schools. In addition to serving DU's NCAA Division 1 tennis programs, the new facility will be managed and operated by the Denver Tennis Park for the benefit of DPS students and the greater Denver community.
