You benefit from philanthropy. Pay it forward.

Donations from alumni, parents, friends, corporations, foundations, and your fellow students have had an impact on your campus experience by supporting:

  • Scholarships
  • New equipment and technology
  • Guest lecturers and speakers
  • Student and faculty research
  • Study abroad programs
  • Clubs and activities
  • Career advice and professional development
  • Much, much more.

Why should you give back to UConn?

Giving improves not just your student experience, but the experience of future students.

When high percentages of students and alumni give back, it affects UConn’s national rankings—and when UConn rises in the rankings, it makes UConn degrees all the more valuable.

Most importantly: Giving helps others.

Continue the tradition of giving at UConn by making a gift today.
