A Legacy of Giving

Ray and Carole Neag have been visionary philanthropists over the years, contributing to many educational and charitable institutions. They have been among the most prominent supporters of the University of Connecticut, and their gifts transformed the Neag School of Education and
the Carole and Ray Neag Comprehensive Cancer Center. They have also made significant contributions to many other programs, helping to raise UConn’s national profile. The Neags are also well known to Berks County, Pennsylvania for their generosity, donating to the Caron Treatment Center in South Heidelberg Township, the Neag Planetarium in Reading, and
the Penn State Health St. Joseph Medical Center.

Focus Areas

Core Beliefs

Higher Education Institutions

Colleges and universities need our support, as states continue to decrease their allocations to higher education. The Neag Foundation is committed to supporting research and creative, new programs at colleges and universities. We believe that support for higher education can have a lasting impact on future generations of college students.


The Neag Foundation supports healthcare and our donations in this area will advance research, healthcare intervention programs and educational outreach. We also support innovative solutions to meet varied and increasing demands in medical professions.

Humanities & the Arts

The Neag Foundation supports the arts and humanities because we believe in the power of the human experience and the ways in which the humanities and the arts enhance our understandings about our world. The arts bring us joy, help us understand our world and enable us to improve our well-being and happiness.
