Saying Thanks

Create a Tribute, Make a Difference

The University of Connecticut Health Center is committed to providing excellent care for the people of Connecticut and beyond. Patients and their loved ones who choose to give back to the Health Center provide vital support for our core mission and make a difference in the lives of countless other patients and their families.

“We often look at issues as large as cancer and wonder how we individually can make a difference.
I’m not a clinician and I’m not a researcher. But I can do this for the future, and I hope others
will consider doing the same.”

–Greg Contas, donor


Why Give?


Say Thank You

There are countless reasons to give back to the UConn Health Center.

  • Patients give to support the compassionate nurses who took such good care of them.
  • Many give in gratitude to the surgeons and physicians who saved their loved ones’ lives.
  • Others support our outreach programs because they see the enormous good these services do in the community.

Honor a Loved One

A gift in honor or memory of a family member or friend is an ideal way to commemorate them while also supporting an area of health care that you are passionate about.

Support Breakthroughs in Medicine

When you make a gift in the name of a doctor or nurse, you not only recognize them for their exceptional care, but also provide support for their work. Our faculty and staff are translating discoveries made in the lab into advances in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of cancer, heart disease, oral health and so much more. Your gift will benefit patients today and for generations to come.
