Private support from donors gives the Department of Statistics an edge for excellence in teaching, research, and outreach. Gifts to the Department help us competitively recruit talented students and faculty, support graduate students and conference travel, and sponsor special seminars and lectures.

Our Funds

A gift may support an existing scholarship or fund, it may create a new fund for current needs, or it may come in the form of an endowment to support programs into the future. Gifts may be made in honor of a faculty member or friend.

For questions about giving to the Department or establishing a new fund, please contact a CLAS development officer.

To make a gift via mail or securities, please visit the How to Give page on the UConn Foundation website.
