December 2015

As we wrap up the calendar year, many Old Boys have decided to include the UCC Fund as a priority in their charitable giving.

They've directed their gift to areas such as financial assistance, boarding, facilities, arts and athletics.

Annual giving is a vital source of institutional momentum and the primary way that Old Boys, parents and friends can help sustain the special features that set the College apart. It also provides a margin of excellence. More than $1.6 million was raised last year.

As Old Boys who benefitted from a UCC education, our support of annual giving is especially important. The success of the UCC Fund reflects the spirit of shared experience and mutual encouragement, as each generation of Old Boys preserves the legacy of opportunity it received, strengthens it, and passes it on.

We hope you'll participate in this year’s UCC Fund.
