Annual Giving

Gifts to the University of Richmond Annual Fund are essential to ensuring Richmond’s continued momentum. You can direct your gift to support the areas of greatest need and student impact. Or, designate your gift to the school, department, or program that means the most to you. Last year, alumni, parents, and friends contributed more than $25M to the University. More than $350,000 of that came from gifts of $100 or less.

Leadership Giving

Leadership gifts have a vital and sustained impact on the University. They support faculty and students through investments in the endowment, capital projects, or current operations. In past years, leadership gifts at UR have provided invaluable resources for priorities including endowed scholarships, student internships in public service, law clinics, new facilities on campus, and more.

Reunion Giving

Your class reunion is an opportunity to come together with the people – and in the place – that mean so much. It’s also a chance to reflect on your Richmond experience and consider how you can pay tribute to your memories while offering today’s Spiders the opportunity to pursue their own dreams.

Tribute Gifts

An honorary or memorial gift is a meaningful way to convey sympathy for the bereaved, memorialize a loved one, commemorate a special occasion, or honor someone special. Giving a tribute gift is a generous and thoughtful way to recognize a person’s life and accomplishments while making a positive impact on the University.
