Promoting sustainability at UConn

UConn Philanthropy Day 2013

Leave a comment

Today marks the University of Connecticut’s 4th annual Philanthropy Day! This yearly celebration reminds us to thank friends, alumni and other donors of UConn for their philanthropic efforts and investments. Many of our donors give loyal, annual support and others give considerable one-time gifts. But, either way, every gift and donation significantly helps support various organizations, programs and initiatives on the University of Connecticut campus. In total, the University has over 34,000 donors, and thousands of those are our very own UConn alumni. In 2012 alone, our donors gave more than sixty-two million dollars, a third of which supported scholarships and other academic initiatives.

It is very important to take a moment of recognize and pay tribute to those who have made generous contributions to the University. Without their charity, several programs on campus that we all enjoy, benefit from and take for granted could not have been continued.

Here, at the Office of Environmental Policy, we would like to express our thanks not only to all University of Connecticut donors, but especially to our Campus Sustainability Fund donors. Your donations have absolutely helped the University earn the status as the “Coolest School” in the nation. Your donations have also helped the University fund many sustainability events and programs. UConn could not have made this achievement without your loyalty and support to the Campus Sustainability Fund. So today, on Philanthropy Day, we would like to give all of you a tremendous thank you!
