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 $23M to the University. More than $370,000 of that came from gifts of $100 or less.

Leadership Giving

Leadership gifts have a vital and sustained impact on the University. They may be made in support of faculty and students through investments in the endowment, capital projects, or current operations. In the past few years, leadership gifts at UR have provided vital resources for priorities ranging from endowed scholarships, to support for student internships in public service, to law clinics, to extraordinary new buildings, to pledged support for the annual fund.

Gift Planning

Planned gifts to Richmond – of any size – enable you to invest in the University’s future while also fulfilling your personal financial goals. When you include a gift to Richmond as part of your legacy, you join generations of Spiders in ensuring that the University and its mission will endure for generations to come.

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 an opportunity to reflect on your University of Richmond experience, and to consider how you can pay tribute to your memories while affording today’s Spiders the opportunity to make their own.

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 with your gift to the University of Richmond. Making an honorary or memorial gift is a generous and thoughtful way to recognize a person’s life and accomplishments.
