Undesignated gifts are the foundation of Benevolent Fund activities. Used where funds are needed most, undesignated gifts fund the Employee Emergency Assistance Program, grants to nonprofits that are not on the designations list, and to start and fund innovative efforts such as the UAB Habitat for Humanity Build and Blazer Kitchen. In addition, the Benevolent Fund supports an array of community nonprofits through donor designated gifts. Agencies are selected through a rigorous application process because they represent nonprofits that have productive partnerships with UAB, align with our mission, and maintain best practices for charitable organizations.

Donors may elect to designate all or part of their gifts. To designate, simply select the nonprofit(s) in the dropdown list if you pledge electronically or write in the agency name(s) if you complete a paper pledge form.
