How to Give

We strongly believe that the University of Hartford experience should be possible for anyone, which is why 93% of our students receive need-based and merit financial aid. When you make a gift to the Anchor Fund, you are helping make financial aid available to UHart students.

There are several ways to make your fully tax-deductible gift to the Anchor Fund:
  • Online through our secure website
  • Checks made payable to University of Hartford can be mailed to
    University of Hartford
    Office of Institutional Advancement
    200 Bloomfield Avenue
    West Hartford, CT 06117
  • Over the phone at 860.768.2400
  • With securities
  • Faculty and staff can give through payroll deduction
  • Through a planned gift
  • By answering your phone. Find out firsthand what your gift means to our students by picking up the phone when they call. Our stellar students at the Hawks Talk Phoneathon enjoy talking to our alumni, parents, and friends

“WE were supported by those came before us.
It’s our responsibility to carry that tradition forward.”

—Robert J. Carr ’93, Alumni Board and CETA Board of Visitors

Annual gifts, both large and small . . .

add up to something big! Not only do gifts of all sizes work together to make a difference to our students, but participation is key – our percentage of alumni donor support has a significant impact. The more you invest in the University of Hartford, the more valuable a University of Hartford degree becomes.


*Six hundred gifts of any size move our participation percentage up one point which translates to higher national college rankings and an increased likelihood in receiving financial support from corporations and foundations.

Help us meet this year's goal of $695,000. Gifts of $25, $100, $500, and $1,000 all add up to dramatically increase our financial resources. Make a gift today.
