Annual Fund
Functioning on a calendar year, the UAB School of Optometry's Annual Fund is operational 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.

Dollars raised from the UAB School of Optometry's Annual Fund are used for the School's greatest needs such as scholarships, research, emergency student needs, technology and other important School programs as determined by the Dean.

Endowments
All gifts given for the purpose of establishing an endowment must be formally accepted by The Board of Trustees of The University of Alabama. Establishment and management of endowment funds represent a significant legal and financial commitment on the part of the University. Recognizing that such sums must often be accumulated over a period of years, the Board of Trustees generally is cooperative in working with a donor who wishes to spread the payments toward an endowment over several years.
