Our annual giving team provides options for donors to make an immediate impact on areas that are important to them, and development officers work directly with donors to match their interests with funding priorities throughout the University.
Donors who make gifts in support of UA’s mission make it possible for dedicated and deserving students to engage in world-class educational opportunities offered by outstanding faculty and researchers. Every gift, regardless of size, is meaningful and makes a difference.
