UNH Fundraising Tops $10 Million

We just closed the books on a record-setting fundraising year here at the University of New Haven. We ended the fiscal year with more than $10.5 million raised from alumni and friends—an increase of more than 36 percent compared to the last two outstanding years!

We owe our success to people like you who graciously made a donation to UNH. Giving back to UNH may seem like a simple act, yet the impact of your contributions on our students will last a lifetime.

Don't just take our word for it. Watch this video of students offering their thanks. Thank you to all our generous donors for making a difference at UNH!

Best regards,

Rick Tuchman
Vice President for University Advancement
