Give. Share. Crowdfunding donors support student enrichment projects, important initiatives and specific needs at the University of New Orleans and share their belief in and commitment to UNO with others! Crowdfunding helps the university leverage our supporters’ connections to maximize the impact of their giving on our mission and the great work being done by students, faculty and staff at UNO every day.

Include the University of New Orleans you in your estate plans. Planned Giving allows you to leave a legacy by making a gift for the future that costs you nothing today.
Endowed funds may be created for scholarships, fellowships, lectureships, research, professorships, library acquisitions, academic chairs, scientific and technical equipment, capital improvements or other educational purposes of UNO. These funds last in perpetuity, and represent your long-term commitment to UNO. Donors may use either outright or deferred gifts to establish named endowed funds. The UNO Foundation works with each donor to prepare guidelines for the administration of each named endowed fund.
Honor and Memorial/Tribute Gifts
Making a gift in honor or memory of a special person or event is a thoughtful way to recognize a special occasion or an individual’s life and accomplishments.
Your gift to the University of New Orleans may be doubled, or even tripled, through your employer’s matching gift program. See our list of employers who have established a Matching Gift Program.
