The UVM Fund
UVM Fund dollars help maintain affordability and address scholarship need. The University recognizes financial aid as one of the most critical emerging needs of students and families. Total financial aid awards topped $165 million last year as the University increased spending to assist the rapidly growing number of students in need.
Your gift to the Fund helps to enhance and strengthen UVM's academic programs. From recruiting and retaining world-renowned faculty — 90 percent of whom hold a Ph.D. or the highest degree in their field — to providing mentoring and tutoring programs for undergraduates, ensuring that students receive a quality UVM education is the top priority of the UVM Fund.
Enrich Campus Life
Your gift to the UVM Fund supports campus life enhancements, including exercise and recreation facilities, campus transportation systems, and student activities. UVM offers more than 50 special-interest housing programs that allow students to learn where they live. Students also enjoy a rich arts and cultural experience on campus, with facilities like the Robert Hull Fleming Museum, Royall Tyler Theatre, and the Living/Learning Pottery Collective. Campus safety is also a top priority, and UVM maintains a fully commissioned and accredited police department and a blue-light emergency phone system, as well as the CAT Alert communication platform.
Strengthen UVM's Reputation
Robust annual giving programs are a measure of institutional strength in the eyes of foundations that issue research grants, bond-rating agencies like Standard and Poor's, and national media like U.S. News and World Report, which publishes annual college rankings. Your support of the UVM Fund not only ensures affordability, enhances academics, and enriches campus life, but is also crucial to the continued growth of our reputation.
