The University of Connecticut’s 30,000 undergraduate and graduate students have dreams of becoming scientists, teachers, health care professionals, artists, business entrepreneurs, engineers and more. Their journey begins with outstanding academics and career guidance, but important experiences also come from outside the classroom. Students can seek out faculty mentors; participate in groundbreaking research, community service and public engagement activities; and build lifelong connections with fellow students.
Private support ensures that these opportunities will always be a part of educating the entire student.
Consistent levels of private support are a key factor in planning for the University. When you give on a regular annual basis you enable UConn to plan for the future with assurance. In 2012, 18% of donors have supported UConn for over 20 years!
Leadership donors who support UConn through annual giving contributions are recognized and thanked through a number of exclusive annual giving recognition societies. Join us today with your gift of $1,000 or more! Learn more about Leadership Giving in our brochure.
The Office of Annual Giving reaches out to alumni, parents and friends through our Student Calling Program. More than 100 bright, engaging students make over one million calls each year as we contact members of the UConn family to ask for your support. Please take a minute to speak with our students when they call. They love to hear about your UConn experiences and can even give you a quick update on what’s happening at UConn today!
More than 8,000 U.S. companies match their employees’ gifts to the UConn Foundation. Click here or contact your human resources department to find out if your employer matches gifts made to the Foundation.
