UAB is one of the country's preeminent research universities. As state assistance shrinks and the costs of higher education rise, private support becomes critical to the university's growth and ability to maintain its standards of excellence. The generosity of our donors has nourished UAB and made possible extraordinary achievements in teaching, research and public service.
Your endowment is a long-term investment in the university, held in perpetuity. It will provide scholarships, support funds, and other benefits to students and faculty year after year, generation after generation. It also gives you the opportunity to have your name or the name of a loved one linked to an area of the university in which you have a special interest. By creating an endowed gift, you can be confident that it will grow and continue to support UAB in the years to come.
