There is no other way to give to so many areas – to touch the lives of so many people – and in so many different ways. It’s not the amount of your gift that is important; it’s the power of giving. Together, we can make an impact.

You make it happen! Because of the generous support of people like you, UAF is able to make an immediate impact on students through the unrestricted general funds of Annual Giving. No other program offers this flexibility -- immediate and responsive to what students need.

Through steady gifts to the Annual Fund, one person and one contribution at a time, we can offer scholarships to deserving students, hire the most knowledgeable professors, and ensure world class education and research that is steeped in northern tradition and focused on vital issues facing our world today.

We change lives. You make it happen.

Like the University of Alaska Fairbanks, the Annual Giving program changes lives -- every day, every year. Every annual gift, whatever the amount, has an immediate impact on vital, education, research and outreach programs at UAF.

Our nation's next policy makers, business leaders, teachers and scientists are honing the vision that will lead the way to a bright future, one class at a time -- in arctic engineering, rural health care, fisheries population dynamics, renewable resources economics, and Inupiaq Eskimo language -- to name a few. With your help, they are preparing to tackle some of today's most troubling issues.

Please join us in direct support of UAF colleges and schools!

The Annual Giving program has the ability to direct gifts through our program into colleges, schools and programs of your choice. Whether it is a gift for the College of Engineering and Mines, the College of Liberal Arts, or the School of Education or the School of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences, any gifts given through the Annual Giving program go to work immediately meeting student needs.

It's not the amount of the gift, it's the spirit and generosity that gift represents.
