Donate The UCI Annual Fund

The UCI Annual Fund

A gift to the UCI Annual Fund supports all organization initiatives and allows us to further our mission to build a community experience that connects all people with Cleveland’s center of culture, healing, and learning.

The importance of your gift

Annual Fund gifts are unrestricted and directed to the area of greatest need within the organization. These contributions have an immediate impact on the community and support everything from our ambassador program with various efforts that help keep the University Circle area clean and safe, to UCI’s Community Education programming for thousands of lifelong learners each year, and new opportunities to engage with families who live in the neighborhoods surrounding the Circle. To make a donation to the UCI Annual Fund, please click here

UCI, through the actions, ideas, and knowledge of its staff and board, has been an ongoing resource to Transplant House of Cleveland, helping it make a strong and informed beginning. Having a vote of confidence from Chris Ronayne and team speaks volumes, and has brought greater attention to Transplant House, than it would have achieved on its own.
