Why Give?


The School of Medicine's physicians, scientists and alumni have been at the forefront of many significant scientific advances of the last century. Today, the many outstanding programs they created continue to attract national and international attention.

Reasons to make a gift to the School of Medicine are as varied as our donors. You may feel deep gratitude for the care you or a loved one received. Perhaps a faculty member's teaching continues to affect your life in a positive way. Maybe you received financial aid in the form of a scholarship and would now like to help fund education for a new generation of students. You may feel passionately about a discipline, a social cause or an area of research supported by the university-or wish to fund new endeavors. Whatever your reasons for giving, your gift will make a difference.

Although The University of Alabama at Birmingham is a public university, donor support is needed now more than ever. Maintaining academic excellence and cutting-edge programs, and keeping talented, award-winning faculty is an investment that will pay enormous dividends now and in the future. Be assured that your gift makes a significant impact by creating a secure, concrete foundation for future success.

Bill of Rights


The School of Medicine adheres to the Donor Bill of Rights. The Donor Bill of Rights was created by the American Association of Fund Raising Counsel, Association for Healthcare Philanthropy, the Association of Fundraising Professionals, and the Council for Advancement and Support of Education. It has been endorsed by numerous organizations.

Donor Bill of Rights
Philanthropy is based on voluntary action for the common good. It is a tradition of giving and sharing that is primary to the quality of life. To ensure that philanthropy merits the respect and trust of the general public, and that donors and prospective donors can have full confidence in the nonprofit organizations and causes they are asked to support, we declare that all donors have these rights:
  1. To be informed of the organization's mission, of the way the organization intends to use donated resources, and of its capacity to use donations effectively for their intended purposes.
  2. To be informed of the identity of those serving on the organization's governing board, and to expect the board to exercise prudent judgment in its stewardship responsibilities.
  3. To have access to the organization's most recent financial statements.
  4. To be assured their gifts will be used for the purposes for which they were given.
  5. To receive appropriate acknowledgement and recognition.
  6. To be assured that information about their donation is handled with respect and with confidentiality to the extent provided by law.
  7. To expect that all relationships with individuals representing organizations of interest to the donor will be professional in nature.
  8. To be informed whether those seeking donations are volunteers, employees of the organization or hired solicitors.
  9. To have the opportunity for their names to be deleted from mailing lists that an organization may intend to share.
  10. To feel free to ask questions when making a donation and to receive prompt, truthful and forthright answers.
