Ways of Giving

There are many ways to support The University of Alabama, and each year thousands of proud alumni and friends make gifts to the University. These gifts are investments in the future.

Did you know that your gift can be directed toward individual programs that you specify?

You may choose to support a program that allows a student from a rural county the chance to study medicine and give back to his community, or a program that provides a business major the knowhow to start her own company and hire local workers.

Giving opportunities abound. By planning ahead on how you want to help the University, you not only make a difference in a student’s life, you also identify and simplify your own objectives.

We can provide information on how to:

  •  Donate larger gifts than you thought possible
  •  Make a gift in your name or in honor of a loved one
  •  Reduce estate, gift, and income taxes
  •  Make gifts that may provide extra retirement income to you
  •  Leave a legacy

Cash is always a great gift and The University of Alabama often receives donations by cash, check, credit card, or direct transfer. Gifts of cash are simple to arrange. Click here to make a gift on-line.

Non-cash gifts

Perhaps you own a mint condition coin collection or a vintage automobile. Do you have a cache of your great grandfather’s Civil War letters to his beloved young wife? Many UA supporters find that donating items rather than money works best for them. Stocks, bonds, mutual funds, homes or land, and life insurance policies are popular gifts.  Other donations might include artwork, jewelry, copyrights, royalties, and valuable collections.
