Celebrating UConn's Longtime Supporters

We recognize and thank the thousands of long-term supporters who have contributed to UConn's rise in national prominence through the years. Your consistent giving is a tremendous source of strength and pride to UConn. We are grateful for your support. Thank you!

Private giving from alumni and friends is the hallmark of a great university. It means the University has touched a life, broadened a mind, expanded an opportunity, made a lasting difference.

The University of Connecticut is grateful to its dedicated donors, regardless of the dollar amount. Your private giving helps support scholarships for deserving students, endowments for prestigious faculty members to advance their teaching and research, and enrichment activities for study, travel and other activities that broaden and enhance the academic experience for the entire university community.

"The reasons I support UConn are simple: I give because I have an abiding affection and gratitude to a number of professors, some other people, the University in general and the Honors program in particular for the profound difference they made in my life and how I see things. Life is short and if my simple gifts make a positive difference in the life of even one person then it has been worth it."
