Our University. Our Moment. The Campaign for UConn is the largest fundraising campaign in the University's 131-year history.
With a goal of raising $600 million, the campaign will dramatically increase private support for scholarships and fellowships for UConn's students; endowed chairs and research support for faculty; new programmatic improvements on every campus; and countless enhancements across the entire University community. The importance of this campaign cannot be overstated. In order to maintain the University's status as a top public research university, UConn must dramatically increase its endowment; increase the number of privately funded scholarships, fellowships and chairs; and support the already groundbreaking research conducted here.
By reaching out to the University's 225,000 alumni, the campaign will stress the importance of private giving to sustain the state's flagship public university, as well as the potential that exists at UConn.
