A Hiiraan University fund raising ceremony, the first of its kind, was held at the Loews Denver Hotel in Denver, Colorado State on October 08, 2005. All segments of the Somali Community of Colorado have attended the event. Members of the religious, intellectual, youth, women and community leaders, have spoken at the event. As expected more than $15,000 (fifteen thousand dollar) was raised. Insha Allahu (God Willing) the fund raising project of the Hiiraan University will continue throughout the United States and the rest of the world.On behalf of the Hiiraan University Foundation, Professor Ahmed M. Warfa of Utah, the keynote speaker at the fund-raising acknowledged the unfailing effort of the Somali community of Colorado for the good gesture.

Hiiraan University continues to rely on donations to help complete the project.
