UConn Gives. 36 Hours, All Paws In.
For the first time in history, UConn Nation is putting all paws in to support the University during a 36-hour online giving event.
UConn Gives will begin on April 4 and continue through April 5, encouraging supporters to make a gift of any amount to their UConn passion project: from student scholarships, to groundbreaking research, and beloved schools, colleges, and academic programs.
“For 36 hours, UConn’s global community will unite in support of a great cause: strengthening the University they love,” said Josh Newton, President and CEO, UConn Foundation. “Philanthropic support is essential to UConn’s continued ascension as a top 20 public university. This is an exciting new way for people to make a difference. When UConn Nation rises as one, there’s nothing we can’t achieve!”
“For 36 hours, UConn’s global community will unite in support of a great cause: strengthening the University they love.”
