Ways to Give

UAH Ways to Give

Individual Giving

Your support is vital to UAH's mission of becoming a premier research university capable of supporting – and growing – the surrounding high-tech community. So whether you are an alumnus, friend, or interested community member, we encourage you to make a gift to UAH to help us continue to reach our goals.

To learn more about our areas of greatest need, or to take a closer look at UAH's naming opportunities, please visit our UAH Priorities page. You can also give online now or contact the Office of Advancement to make a pledge.

Employer Matching Gifts

Your employer may sponsor a matching gift program that will match, double, or – in some instances – more than double your gift to the UAH Foundation. Some companies also match gifts made by spouses, retirees, or board members. To find out if your company has a matching gift policy, please search for your employer's name below.

Search Companies for Matching Gifts

If eligible, request and complete the matching gift form provided by your employer. You may be able to access the form directly through the search tool. Follow the procedure set by your employer and the UAH Foundation will be happy to assist you. Mail your gift along with the completed matching gift form or Give Now online and send the completed matching gift form separately to:

The University of Alabama in Huntsville
Office of Development
Attn: Lisa Andrews
Shelbie King Hall 316A
Huntsville AL 35899

Corporate matching gifts are directed to the same designation as your gift, unless your employer stipulates otherwise. The UAH Foundation will recognize you for the full amount of your gift plus the resulting corporate match. If you have questions or need more information about matching gifts, contact Lisa Andrews at lisa.andrews@uah.edu or 256.824.2105. Thank you for multiplying the impact of your gift to the UAH Foundation.

UAH Phonathon

UAH Phonathon
Michael Mercier | UAH

The Phonathon is an important tool in UAH's fundraising toolbox. Money raised from the twice-annual event goes to support student scholarships, student research collaborations with faculty, campus speakers, student stipends for study-abroad opportunities, athletics, and more. Donors can also opt to designate their gift to a specific college or department, or to the President's Excellent Fund, which provides support to those areas of greatest need.

But while fundraising is an important goal, it's not the only one! Current students – and not anonymous third-party callers – staff the Phonathon, enabling alumni and community members to engage in meaningful conversation over shared experiences. It's also a great opportunity for networking, because it brings together both potential employers and soon-to-be members of the professional workforce.

If you have questions or need more information about the Phonathon, please let us know! Contact Jennifer Brost, Director of Annual Giving & Research, at jennifer.brost@uah.edu or 256.824.6853.

Planned Giving

RST Society

The Richardson Shaver Thrasher (RST) Society

Michael Mercier | UAH

Your UAH degree was an investment in your future and a planned gift to UAH would be an investment in the future of UAH, which has a central role in the development of our high tech community.

By including UAH in your will or estate plan, you will be able to make an enduring impact on the university while enjoying the other benefits of estate planning.

You will also be enrolled as a member of the Richardson Shaver Thrasher (RST) Society, named to honor the society's founders, Patrick W. Richardson, Charles E. Shaver Sr., and Tom Goodman Thrasher. The RST Society honors those who plan to invest in the future of UAH.

Brenda Walker in the Development Office can assist you with any questions or information that you might need regarding planned giving to UAH. Brenda can be reached at 256.824.6971 or brenda.walker@uah.edu
