Reasons to support the UE annual fund:
- Tuition covers only about two-thirds of the real cost of undergraduate education.
- More than half of all UE undergrads depend on need-based scholarships from the university.
- UE’s endowment covers only about 10 percent of the University’s budget.
- Most gifts are restricted. Annual, expendable gifts provide vital flexibility.
- UE’s mission is global. Big ideas can be expensive. Making a difference is worth it.
- Every gift makes a difference! Most gifts made to UE are under $1,000. But together they add up to millions for financial aid, academics, student life, and other programs.
