Help Students (and President Williams) By Supporting Proudly Pennies and The Transformation Fund

Alumni and friends of the university are encouraged to support the University Transformation Fund, which provides University of Cincinnati President Gregory H. Williams with the financial means to meet urgent funding needs and implement his vision for UC’s future. Whether it’s providing scholarships, helping to start new academic programs and collaborations or enhancing student life initiatives, your gift will help our new president make an immediate impact. Your support will also serve as a vote of confidence from the alumni community in our new leader as he begins to make his mark on UC.

The student-led Proudly Pennies initiative is well underway, as students across UC’s colleges and campuses have come together to begin raising one billion pennies for student-based priorities and the Proudly Cincinnati campaign. While their efforts to form oversight committees and involve additional students are still in the preliminary stages, alumni and friends can give the effort a shot in the arm by supporting Proudly Pennies through online giving. These gifts will supplement the students’ outreach to faculty, staff, business partners and members of the community while providing momentum to the initiative at an especially crucial time.

The best part? You can help students get closer to their goal and support the university without lugging a bunch of pennies to campus!

It’s easy to give to Proudly Pennies online, and you can even designate your gift to a specific college if you prefer. To learn more about Proudly Pennies and make a gift, log on to

Together, we continue to build on the positive transformation of UC and clearly demonstrate we are Proudly Cincinnati.
