There are so many ways for UC Alumni to give back! Here are just some of the ways you can get involved!
- Support 1819
If you have not given to UC in the past year, please consider giving $18.19 as part of the 1819 initiative to increase UC's alumni giving rate and raise UC in the national rankings!
- Give to UCAA
With an annual gift of $50 or more to UCAA, you will be recognized in the Loyal Bearcat Society. With a cumulative lifetime giving to UCAA of $2,500 or more, you will be recognized in the William Howard Taft Society.
- Recommend UC to others
We all know students, or parents of students, who are beginning to consider their college options. As alumni, we need to be UC's best real-life ambassadors and help others see UC's all-around excellence.
- If you're an Ohio resident, put a UC license plate on your car
The distinctive C-paw license plate shows your Bearcat pride on the road, and $25 of the annual $35 fee goes directly to fund scholarships for deserving UC students.
- Attend events with your fellow alumni
There's always something going on at UC - on campus or nationwide via our 35+ regional alumni networks. Your participation strengthens the university community - and you're bound to have fun, too!
- Volunteer your time and talents
UC's students, faculty and staff depend on alumni to be a key part of the educational process. Alumni can get involved in student mentoring and shadowing programs, student recruitment, helping to organize events like Homecoming or Reunions, coordinating regional network activities, and much more.
- Support the UC Alumni Association's corporate partners
They offer high-quality products and services, and a portion of their revenue from alumni business flows directly back to the UC Alumni Association to fund strategic initiatives.
- Connect via UC-related social media
Network with your fellow UC grads on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and inCircle, the online community exclusively for UC alums and students.
- Tell others about UC Alumni Association scholarships
UCAA scholarship funds can help defray the costs of attending UC. And there are scholarships set aside strictly for legacy students.
- Make sure we have your current e-mail address
Often, our ability to help each other is a direct result of our ability to communicate quickly and easily with you.
