Thank you for considering a gift to our UABTeach program. UABTeach is growing at a rapid pace, and your contribution will ensure a successful, self-sustaining program that makes sure schools in central Alabama have a constant supply of caring, committed, and qualified STEM teachers.

Endowment Opportunities

Endowment Opportunities

An endowment is a long-term investment in the university, held in perpetuity, that will provide scholarships, support funds, and other benefits to students and faculty year after year. Because the gift principal is invested and only a portion of the income is spent, a donor who creates an endowed gift today can be confident that it will grow and continue to support UAB in the years to come.
