Know ! A Philanthropic Circle for the School of Education

Making a Difference – Together


Know! is passion. Know! is power. Know! is making a difference – together.

Know! is a philanthropic giving circle that is dedicated to helping the School of Education create amazing opportunities for students of all ages. All donors, from established donors to those seeking to make their first gift, are invited to join, share their passion, and create something meaningful for the School of Education.

Know! has a three-part mission: to educate donors about the exemplary programs and areas of excellence at the School of Education, to engage donors in the life of the School, and to empower those who want to make a difference.

Know! inspires donors to discover the power of giving together. Throughout the year, members are invited to presentations about selected areas of need in the School of Education. Members collaborate and cast votes to distribute funding to people, projects and programs, helping to ensure success.

How it Works

Know! members help change the world by investing together in the School of Education and the work it does. We invite you to join us and make a difference – together! Each member of Know! is asked to contribute a minimum of $1,000 that is deposited into a pooled fund at the School of Education.

The people, projects, programming and research efforts of the School of Education will be shared with members at several meetings throughout the year. Decisions about funding distribution are collaborative, with the full membership voting on best use of their collected funds. Know! members will be invited to witness the impact of their giving and realize the difference that even a modest investment makes.

To learn how you can make a difference and for more information, please contact Director of Development Lori E. Green (lorig@uab.edu).

I want to join Know! and make a difference.
