The University of Toledo Foundation

Celebrate 150 years of UToledo with us

The University of Toledo has been improving the world since our founding on Oct. 12, 1872, as a public institution. For 150 years, we have been providing a life-changing education to our students.

UToledo's sesquicentennial celebration takes place from now until June 2023. It includes a wide range of events, limited-edition merchandise and more to help recognize the alumni and milestones that have made UToledo an engine for opportunity. 

As a part of this historic milestone, the University of Toledo Foundation has launched a University-wide sesquicentennial campaign. Contributions made to the campaign will directly support need-based scholarships for deserving students. 

Your gift, in any amount, will help unlock a $1.5 million gift and donations of $150 and above will be matched dollar for dollar up to $1 million.
