Annual giving supports scholarships that allow us to enroll outstanding students, buys athletic equipment, funds internships, underwrites the cost of field research, brings important speakers and artists to campus, provides resources for faculty, and so much more. The College puts these gifts to immediate use in the current fiscal year.

Annual gifts come in all sizes, from a few dollars up to $100,000 or more. Your enthusiasm sends an important message to others. And it provides tremendous advantages to Connecticut College students -- advantages that will last a lifetime.

You can make a gift with a credit card online or by calling the College at 1-800-888-7549. You can mail a check to 270 Mohegan Ave, New London, CT 06320 or you can make a gift of appreciated securities.

"By donating appreciated stock rather than simply writing a check to support CC, my wife Donna and I meet several objectives.  Since we did not sell the stock prior to the donation, we avoid incurring capital gains taxes.  Because we are not donating from the family "checkbook," we were able to make a somewhat larger donation, thus maximizing the gift amount and our charitable deduction.  This strategy can also help reduce the risk inherent in a concentrated stock position. Go Camels!" - Mike Stryker '86

Annual giving is the foundation of the College's financial support. The vast majority of gifts the College receives are through the Annual Fund. See the Honor Roll of Giving.

Connecticut College provides exceptional opportunities that prepare students to make a difference in the world today. This education matters. It takes your support.
