Fiat dollars, I think.
I have heard that CU's biggest donations over the years have come from the family estate of Thomas B. Artsandsciences. Supposedly he funded an entire school at CU, but I'm not sure which one...I don't think we'll ever know.
I think the top 1 or 2 are anonymous
i'm guessing mike bohn knows who they are...
Do you think you could use some of your influence and get beer back into Folsom?
Actually, he doesn't. Whenever MB wants to talk to the big donors, he leaves a note in a notch of the tree outside Old Main, it gets picked up read and the response comes back to MB the same way. That is why there was a delay in firing D II after the KU debacle. Handing off secret notes takes time...
If Frontier get the naming rights to Folsom, that should put them in the top 5
Where I sit, the beer flows like wine.
an alley behind pearl street!
Edit: oh nevermind, I thought it said "Bonars" not "Donors"
I have no idea who the "big donors" are, but maybe these names from the head coach search committee might be a good place to start:
Dave Hoover, Chairman & CEO/Ball Corporation;
Roger Parker (’83, Business-Mineral Land Management), Chairman & CEO/Recovery Energy, Inc.;
George Solich (‘83, Business-Mineral Land Management), President & CEO/Cordillera Energy Partners III, LLC.
That's not a donation. Naming rights are a marketing service that they would be purchasing.

The CU AD has established "The Buff Club Cabinet" that consists of up to 100 members who make a 3-year minimum commitment to annually donate $25K to the athletic program. See p11 of the PDF file for listing of named Buff Cabinet members.
I'd guess billionaire Tom and Cydney Marisco might be among the top 5.
Seems like there is a lot of petroleum donors.
Oh crap, that means we're just like A&M.
No wonder UCCS was just building as many buildings as possible when I was there, knew they had a donation for the Events Center but not the others.
Wait. Wut? Did CU get a top 10 petroleum engineering program? W00t!
Let's open a campus in Qatar!
