UConn Gives is the first-ever university-wide online fundraising initiative to support UConn.  For 36 hours on April 4-5, 2018, UConn Nation will come together to strengthen its university.

Groups across all five campuses will connect with their supporters around the world to raise funds for the programs and causes important to them.

The possibilities are endless. Whether it’s a school, college, department, club, student group, or research area, give to what’s most important to you starting 12 AM on April 4 to 12 PM on April 5.

This is a moment for UConn Nation to come together and celebrate our University. For 36 hours, your generosity can transform the future of the University you love and the causes you are passionate about. Every gift can make a difference.

During UConn Gives, your gift can make an even greater impact. Give to a cause with a match challenge and your $50 gift becomes a $100 contribution. Help your passion area rise to the top of the donor leaderboard to unlock even greater opportunities. Watch our progress during UConn Gives to see how alumni, parents, friends, students, and fans like you are making a difference.

How Can You Get Involved?

Mark your calendar for April 4-5. During UConn Gives, visit givingday.uconn.edu to make a donation to support UConn—and then help us spread the word! Let those in your network know you are all paws in for UConn by posting to your social networks using #UConnGives.

Take your Husky pride to the next level and become a Giving Day Ambassador. By signing up to be an ambassador, you’ll get insider info on the giving day, a toolkit to help spread the word, and a giving link to easily track the donations you are bringing in.
