Donations increase at UConn
University of Connecticut officials say donors gave nearly $51 million to the school over the past fiscal year, an 11 percent boost over the prior year’s fundraising tally.
UConn Foundation Inc., which raises money for the university, says the donations in the financial year that ended July 1 will help bolster academic programs, athletics and student scholarships.
UConn alumni donated nearly 46 percent of the money. Other sources include corporations, private foundations and other supporters.
