As an alum, your gift is even more critical to the success of UC and our students. Why?
- Rankings – One of the first criteria used to determine college rankings, like the U.S. News & World Report and Princeton Review, is alumni participation. The number of alumni who support their alma mater matters!
- Corporate & Foundation Support – Currently half of all donations to UC come from private and corporate foundations. As with college rankings, many foundations require a reporting of alumni participation to qualify UC for consideration. The more alumni who give, the better UC’s chances are of obtaining much-needed foundation support.
- Investment – Your support shows our students that you care about their education and motivates them to succeed. Show our future alumni that you care about their education!
- Respect – The national average for alumni support of private colleges and universities is over 20%. Currently, only 10% of UC alumni support their alma mater. You can help us get closer to our peers by making a donation today!
This year our goal is to reach 1,400 alumni donors. Will you be the alum that makes this goal a reality today?
