Giving to UConn
Late in 1880, Charles and Augustus Storrs gave $5,000 and several acres of farmland to the state of Connecticut in support of establishing an agricultural school for boys. Their generosity gave birth to an outstanding academic institution that has transformed the state of Connecticut and impacted New England, the nation and the world.
Today, the University of Connecticut continues to be empowered by the generosity of our benefactors. A gift to UConn is an investment in education, scholarship, research and public service. Our accomplishments of today are fueled by the past donations of those who believed in the limitless potential of UConn. By giving to UConn today, you invest in the promise of our luminous future.
