About the 2020 campaign

UAF is a proud supporter of United Way of the Tanana Valley. For many years, UAF employees and students have generously contributed time, talent and dollars to United Way, helping to ensure health, education and income stability for all people in our community. One in four people in Fairbanks has been helped by a United Way member agency, and the need continues. By supporting the United Way of the Tanana Valley, we can make sure help is there when it is needed.
