Class of 2015 Senior Gift

Join the tradition of philanthropy of the Senior Class at the University of Hartford—make a gift today!

What is the Senior Gift?
The Senior Gift will go towards financial assistance for an incoming freshman. Just as the Anchor Fund helped you reach your goal of achieving a UHart degree, you can now help the next wave of UHart’s future alumni!

What is the Anchor Fund?
The Anchor Fund is UHart’s Annual Fund, a pool of gifts that feeds financial assistance, academic and social programs, improvements to campus facilities, faculty development, and any area in need. Many unexpected opportunities and costs arise throughout the year, so it is important to have a constant flow of donations into the Anchor Fund to cover these expenses.  

Who gives to the Anchor Fund?
Alumni, faculty and staff, parents, friends, other members of the community, and STUDENTS LIKE YOU!

How do I benefit?
If you receive financial assistance from the University, you can thank those who gave to the Anchor Fund. Additionally, almost everything around you is touched by the Anchor Fund: the grounds, buildings, equipment in labs and classrooms, and even your professors who are able to continue their professional development. The percentage of donors to the Anchor Fund is one of the most important measurements counted in national college rankings. So upon graduation, even the value of your degree is affected by the Anchor Fund! Every gift to The Anchor Fund is like a vote of support, so the amount you give is up to you. The important thing is to invest in the future with an Anchor Fund gift.


Why Should I give?

  1. Hawk pride - Every gift enhances the University's excellence and the value of your degree 
  2. Pay it forward - Ensure Hawks who follow you have an equally great experience
  3. Support your University - Alumni giving participation influences Hartford's ranking each year
  4. Start a tradition of giving now - Set an example for future classes to follow and compete with!
