Dear friends,

It is my honor to thank you for the generosity you’ve shown our university—and the people of Alabama—through your gifts to The Campaign for UAB. Because of you, we have surpassed our ambitious $1 billion goal, and I wanted to share with you how your philanthropy is being felt across our campus.

Today we have 211 new endowed scholarships to bolster our students’ academic careers along with 33 new endowed chairs and 59 new endowed professorships to help us recruit and retain renowned leaders in their fields. Shining, state-of-the-art facilities are encouraging collaborative learning and groundbreaking discoveries. Investments in research and innovation are yielding breakthroughs in health care, entrepreneurship, the arts, and many other areas that are changing lives throughout our community. The impact of the Campaign for UAB will be felt for years to come across Birmingham and Alabama and around the world.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of UAB’s establishment. Your generous support helps pave the way for the next 50 years of growth and leadership in education, research, health care, community service, and economic development. We are grateful for all you do to build a brighter future for UAB.

Sincerely,

Tom Brannan
Vice President for Advancement
