Welcome U: Helping our U community as we start a new semester

Welcome U is the University of Utah’s virtual fundraising event supporting campus areas that support students, faculty, staff and the community.

The first weeks of a new school year are an exciting time at the U. We invite you to celebrate our students and this new academic year with a gift to an area that provides critical resources for our campus community and beyond.

You can make an immediate impact on our peers and our students’ lives by donating or participating in one of the following below.

Support students and their immediate and basic needs

We are here to help our students, educate them about and connect them to campus and community resources to help them meet their basic needs. Give to the Basic Needs Center.

Help fight campus food insecurity with the Feed U Pantry

Join the fight against hunger for our students, staff and faculty. Make a financial gift or give non-perishable items or hygiene items.

Aid staff and faculty members in crises

Give to the OneUCares Emergency Fund.

Invest in students’ access and completion at the U

Imagine U Scholarships are critical, the scholarships are used to cover tuition and fees for students with the most financial need, as well as emergency grants for students who face unexpected hardships. Give to the Imagine U General Scholarship.

Make an impact in on-campus health and wellness

The Center for Campus Wellness has a simple mission. We support students’ and campus’ well-being and success through holistic and inclusive programs that center on wellness, safety and healing. Give to the Center for Campus Wellness.
