Why Give?



The simple answer is that you value what Connecticut College does and you want to support it. You want the College to thrive.

Thousands of members of the College community feel that way. When all of that support is combined, they make an enormous difference in the lives of our students. Last year, some 6,600 alumni, parents and friends made gifts to the Annual Fund totaling more than $4.8 million.

Your support provides a college experience that transforms lives. Students are prepared for a world of unpredictable challenges and opportunities.

Outstanding professors are mentors, not just teachers. Learning happens not just in the classroom, but also across campus, in the local community, and across the world through internships and volunteer work. Passions grow on the athletic fields and in performance halls. This unparalleled sense of community nurtures friendships that last a lifetime.

Tuition has never paid the full cost of a Connecticut College education. Every student since the early days of the College has benefited from the generosity of others. Giving back is a tradition at Connecticut College — be a part of it!
