to support The Fund for UConn Health. More information.
The UConn Foundation operates a dedicated office to support development and alumni relations at UConn Health , which has received significant philanthropic support from grateful patients, faculty, alumni, and friends throughout it history. These gifts have helped prepare the next generation of health professionals, advance research in critical areas, enhance care for patients and improve the health of our communities.
This is particularly important given the revolutionary Bioscience Connecticut initiative, launched in 2011. Bioscience Connecticut marks UConn Health as a driver for the Connecticut’s economy, as well
as the hub of innovative research for tomorrow’s medicine.
While UConn Health has done much with the resources it receives in research grants, medical reimbursements, state assistance, and student tuition, it is the additional resources from private giving that allows talented faculty and students to achieve their full potential.
