Be sure to check out the pics from last week's celebration event for the end of the Ignite competition. More than 1,600 individuals gave more than $42,000 during Ignite to support UConn's students! Thank you all!

Good story in the Courant about the dual championships and the role they play in generating excitement, knowledge of UConn and philanthropic support for the University. Check it out!
UConn 's dual national basketball championships brought publicity that no university could buy, from the "Today" show visiting the Storrs campus to Jimmy Fallon inviting star center Stephanie Dolson to a game of Xbox one-on-one.

Amazing student teams racing to the championship, and this time we're not talking about the NCAAs! The Ignite competition ends tonight, and it's been a crazy few days. It literally is still anyone's game to win. If you haven't supported a team yet, do it today...your gift of $5 could help them win $10,000...or more!

Richard '69 '77 and Kathleen Narowski support graduate fellowships in the UConn School of Engineering in part to attract the best students to UConn. Richard also gives his time to the school through his work on the Computer Science & Engineering Advisory Board. Thank you to the Narowskis and everyone who supports UConn's graduate students!

Kyle Pratt '15 came to UConn from Norwalk Community College through the Guaranteed Admissions Program. When he got to Storrs, the Susan Herbst and Douglas Hughes Family Scholarship in Humanities helped him pay his way. Thank you to President Herbst, Mr. Hughes and everyone who supports scholarships through their philanthropy!

UConn's most generous donors, Carole and Ray '56 '01H Neag, have built upon their legacy of transformational philanthropy with a new $3-million gift to support UConn Health. Through their support of the Carole and Ray Neag Comprehensive Cancer Center, they are providing hope, care, research and education in the fight against cancer. We simply cannot say thank you enough.

#bleedblue! You can easily show your support for our Final Four teams by making a gift via text message! Choose either the new UConn Basketball Champions Center or the Husky Annual Scholarship Fund. It takes seconds and helps secure the future of UConn basketball. Share with your network of UConn fans too!

With just two weeks left to Ignite 2014, we challenged the teams to submit a great video telling their story, in hopes of also winning a $1,000 prize for the best video. The entries have been great, and we're looking forward to sharing some of them soon!

Giving to support UConn can mean many things, as evidenced by Chris Lafond '87, who is an active volunteer at UConn's Stamford campus, a board member in the University of Connecticut School of Business and also a scholarship donor! Thank you, Chris, and everyone who makes UConn a better place.
