Donate Now ButtonBenevolent Fund donors have the option of giving an undesignated gift to allow the Fund flexibility in operating its Employee Emergency Assistance Program, providing annual grants to local nonprofits not included within the Fund’s designation list, and hosting projects like the campus wide Habitat for Humanity build. Undesignated gifts also allow the Fund to offer innovative programs like our Community Impact Grant or provide the seed money to establish Blazer Kitchen.

Give by Credit Card NewAlternately, donors may elect to designate their gift to up to 3 nonprofits on the Benevolent Fund designation list below. These agencies have been selected through an application process because they represent nonprofits that have productive partnerships with UAB, align with our mission, have broad appeal and maintain best practices for charitable organizations. To designate your gift, simply select the nonprofit in the dropdown list if you pledge electronically or write in the agency name(s) if you complete a paper pledge form. Your gift will be evenly divided among all nonprofits to which you designate. Additionally, you can designate a portion of your gift and leave a portion undesignated to be used where needed most.

Below, you can view all nonprofits to which you may designate your gift or narrow the list by selecting your area of interest. Click the name of the nonprofit to be redirected to their website to learn more about their programs. Indicated in the box with the nonprofit is the amount received in 2020 from employee contributions and any special notations about the nonprofit.
