Become a UAFAA Benefactor

The Alumni Benefactor Program was established to encourage alumni to participate in an annual giving program. Alumni benefactors once raised $21,900. The funds are used to underwrite student-oriented projects such as the purchase of furniture for the Wood Center and alumni office lounges. We have also underwritten many student projects, including campus concerts, residence hall activities, campuswide events and celebrations and the replacement of Student Activities' outdoor recreation equipment.
