Each and every gift you make to support UConn Athletics has a direct impact on the lives of our student-athletes. As the stories below illustrate, by making a contribution you help provide deserving young people with an opportunity to be champions both athletically and academically.

To everybody who has made an investment in UConn Athletics, we would like to say thank you! The level of success we have been able to enjoy would not be possible without your continued generosity.

Being a student-athlete here has been a wonderful experience."
