36 Hours to a Better UConn.

The initiative starts at 7 a.m. ET on March 27 and ends at 7 p.m. ET on March 28. You can make a gift at any time during this window to support the aspects of UConn’s mission you care about the most. So, keep an eye on givingday.uconn.edu!  

You Could Unlock Extra Funds for Your Favorite Cause.

Some projects will have matching funds pledged by donors that will multiply your gift’s impact. Additional funding will also be given to the three projects with the highest number of donors.  

Everyone Will Be There.

Did you love your time at Avery Point, Stamford Campus, or the Law School? Or did a club sport, a cappella group, or other student organization really make your time at UConn special? You can support funds at all of UConn’s campuses, as well as UConn Law, UConn Health, and the more than 40 student groups participating in Ignite this year.  

You Can Spread the Word.

UConn Gives can only be successful with your help. You can spread the word on your social network, through email or phone calls, or even at alumni events. Stay tuned for other ways in which you can champion your University.

We’re Hosting Social Media Challenges.

We’ve scheduled a selfie challenge, a caption contest, a call for Throwback Thursday photos, and other challenges to get the UConn online community into the spirit! Winners, chosen at random, will get a UConn prize pack and the opportunity to direct money to the fund of their choice. Make sure to tag/share using #UConnGives and @UConnAlumni in your posts!  

You Can Be a Part of Something Big.

With more than 110 UConn projects—ranging from scholarships to learning communities to programs that give a leg up to first-generation students—you can celebrate UConn and make meaningful change to your community.


UConn Gives 2019 is almost here! Join us at givingday.uconn.edu on March 27 and 28 for another record-breaking 36 hours of giving.
