Student Giving

Ignite 2013

Ever sample the One-Ton Sundae or cheer on the basketball team at Gampel? Maybe you got thoroughly muddy during Oozeball or danced until your feet were sore at Huskython?

Try another proud UConn tradition: giving back.

Student giving is a point of pride for the UConn Foundation. We know it might be tough to find money to donate, so we’re here to help you find ways to give as a group.

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.
