A Grateful Message To An Anonymous Donor

UConn School of Engineering receives $1M anonymous donor check

Dear Anonymous Donor,

Thank you—whoever you are—for kicking off our Centennial like this! We received your $1 million bank check and anonymous letter. We will make sure that it is used exactly as you requested.

It is extraordinarily rare that the University receives a truly anonymous gift of this size—and it will make all the difference. Donors often want their names kept private, but getting an anonymous $1 million bank check in a FedEx with instructions for its use has never happened at the UConn School of Engineering. And this public thank-you is our only hope of reaching you.

We are enormously grateful to you—and everyone who is helping to transform the School of Engineering.

The gift has been used to create the Centennial Engineering Term Professorship, which will recognize six outstanding faculty members.
