The event is free, but reservations are recommended by calling (970) 491-7328.

"This is a special opportunity for people to learn more about how they can best direct their finances to areas they’re most interested in," said Art Bavoso, director of planned giving at Colorado State. "Scott Fithian was rated the No. 1 speaker in the nation by the National Committee on Planned Giving because of his dynamic presentations and straightforward, no-nonsense discussions of philanthropic estate planning." Fithian, a graduate of the University of New Hampshire Whitmore School of Business and Economics, received designations of Chartered Life Underwriter and Chartered Financial Consultant from the American College, Bryn Mawr, Pa.
