Every year, about 30,000 households donate to support the University of Connecticut. Some donors give because of the pride they feel in their state university. Others want to give back for the education they received as a student. For still others, it's about contributing to the thrill of UConn athletics or because their life was saved at the UConn Health Center.
Whatever the reason, private giving drives the University of Connecticut, today and into the future as UConn aspires to maintain its status as a top public university.
Philanthropic gifts augment the traditional revenue streams of tuition and state support, and often separate good universities from truly great ones. Philanthropy touches every part of UConn. It provides student scholarships, aids graduate research, gives faculty members the freedom to explore and discover, and so much more.
As you read the Stories of Giving, about why our donors support us, think about all of the ways that UConn has changed your life. And please join us by making a gift to support the state's flagship public university, as we celebrate Our University. Our Moment. The Campaign for UConn.
