A fund has been started to create an endowed scholarship to honor the memory of Devin Thomas Gaines ’07, who died July 10.
Gaines, who graduated with five degrees, was known for his compassion, volunteerism, philanthropic nature, and academic success.
Those who wish to make donations to establish the scholarship should make a check payable to the UConn Foundation with “Gaines Memorial Fund” in the memo field.
Checks may be sent to Michael McCarthy, Program Director of Leadership Gifts, Annual Giving, University of Connecticut Foundation Inc., 2390 Alumni Drive, Storrs, CT 06269-3206.
Any contribution can bring the Devin Gaines Memorial Fund a step closer to reaching permanent endowment status, which will help perpetuate the scholarship for years to come.
Additional information may be found at the website set up by his friends, www.devingaines.com.
