Giving Tuesday: November 30, 2021

Generosity Transforming the World

Since 2012, #GivingTuesday has grown to be a global movement demonstrating the collective power of millions to unlock opportunity and equity through gestures of generosity. This Giving Tuesday, we invite you to be a catalyst in this movement, joining UHart in our promise to provide a place where our students feel safe as they learn and engage with each other. Unleash your power to transform our students' lives and their communities, just like UHart faculty and staff do every day.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Fund

UHart is proud of our incredible diversity and is deeply committed to fostering an open, safe, and welcoming home for students from all backgrounds. The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Fund helps to bolster learning opportunities and programming for students, faculty, and staff to encourage thoughtful dialogue and discourse surrounding diversity, equity, inclusion, and social justice. The DEI fund benefits the entire campus community and gives students—like Deja George '24 and Emily Steele '21, D'24—opportunities to explore their potential.

Brothers and Sisters United (BSU) Book Fund

Brothers and Sisters United (BSU) established the BSU Book Fund in 1993 to help defray the ever-rising cost of textbooks. Due to COVID-19, its signature fundraising events were postponed or scaled back for the health and safety of students and guests, so now more than ever, the BSU Book Fund is in need of support. You can be part of the life-changing impact of providing access to critical tools of education for students like Lillian Bertram '24, who would have never imagined the opportunities that opened up for her at UHart.

Hillel Annual Fund

In a time when building community is more challenging than ever, Hillel staff and student leaders have endeavored to safely develop meaningful connections for students. Through its inclusive programming, Hillel has created an incredible network for students like Emerson Fischer '23, providing opportunities for students to bond with and support each other, making UHart a place that is a welcoming and warm home away from home.

The Women's Advancement Initiative

Built on the legacy of Hartford College for Women, The Women's Advancement Initiative's collective priority is to advance the potential of women at UHart; challenging, encouraging, and empowering them as leaders. The program offers unique educational and leadership opportunities for students like Cheneal Ming '24, who benefits from access to a network of powerful, impactful women poised for success and positive change. 

UHart Impact Fund

Unrestricted gifts to the UHart Impact Fund touch all aspects of the University experience, providing immediate and vital support wherever it’s needed most, from student financial aid—the University’s highest priority—to state-of-the-art teaching and technology tools used in classrooms and research. The Fund also provides valuable support for our distinguished faculty, and helps advance new and innovative programming throughout the University. Support to the UHart Impact Fund helps strengthen the UHart experience for students like Sean Svalestad '23.

General Scholarship Fund

Gifts to the UHart General Scholarship Fund make an immediate impact by providing vital support for student scholarships and access to the UHart experience for many who otherwise would not have the chance to study here. Contributions to this fund help students like Christian Francois '24 prepare for the future and explore their potential.
