A Tradition Of Philanthropy
The University of Evansville has a proud tradition of philanthropy, beginning on campus with our students. During the 2014-15 academic year, UE students reported more than 19,000 hours of service to the Evansville community through various activities such as tutoring, mentoring, serving meals, building homes, and assisting with the elderly. Each fall during the Welcome Week, new freshmen head out to more than 15 community organizations and learn what it means to be a UE student by serving their new neighbors in the Evansville community.
The tradition continues long after our students graduate. As of June 2012, the 49 members of the Clifford Circle, recognizing cumulative gifts of $1 million and above, have given $135,218,522.12 to the University of Evansville. In May of 2015, the campaign for the Bower-Suhrheinrich Library was completed, raising a total of $3,201,103.46. In September of 2014, $701,000 was raised by alumni, friends, and local corporate foundations to build a new greenhouse on campus.
The strong relationship between the University and its alumni, friends, parents, and donors illustrates the spirit of giving that makes the University of Evansville extraordinary. We hope you will become a part of the tradition and make a gift to UE today.
