Passionate Donors

The University of New England is grateful for the donors — including UNE alumnistudentsfaculty, professional staff, and friends of UNE — whose philanthropic support have built critical infrastructure, enhanced scholarship support, expanded internship opportunities across colleges, supported global learning experiences, and improved access to meaningful student-faculty research.

Our donors tell us every day how passionate they are about supporting UNE and we're excited to share their excitement with you.


Wesley Kenyon
The main impetus for my involvement was to carry on the legacy of St. Francis College, to epitomize the core values of St. Francis College, and to connect the legacy of past students to the students of today.


Nate’s legacy will continue to be felt at the university.


Rachel Naida
I think helping them both in the classroom and by sponsoring a white coat, is a fantastic way to pay it forward, as well as celebrate and inspire our students.

Professional staff

It's much easier for me to make a gift as staff because I have my gift deducted directly from my paycheck. It's not huge, but it does add up.

UNE stood out to me for [its] progressive curriculum and extraordinary management team. I have no doubt it will be an excellent custodian of Ram Island.
