A message from Director Michael Alfultis:
The University of Connecticut Avery Point Campus is driven to provide an excellent education and exceptional experiential learning opportunities to our students, to serve the citizens of our state, and to address our region's most vital issues. The campus is primarily funded through appropriations from the State of Connecticut. While this funding does provide for basic facilities and programs, the Avery Point Campus, like most colleges, depends on private financial support to add a "margin of excellence" to its programs. Private financial support affords all who benefit from Avery Point's services and programs even greater levels of access and opportunity through innovative new programs; funding for student scholarship awards; technology, equipment and improved facilities; and recruitment and retention of exceptional faculty.
If you would like to see your UConn donation directly benefit our Avery Point student academic and activity programming, I ask that you please consider earmarking your generosity to one of the following Avery Point Foundation accounts. Also, please see the letter from Avery Point alum Mike Muehe. A donation to the campus would be of great help to students such as Mike who discover and experience the benefits of attending a small, focused campus. Thank you in advance for your consideration to donate.
