Established in 1962, the UAH Foundation is a private nonprofit corporation that supplements the university’s fundraising activities. Its private donors are a vital part of the UAH budget.

The UAH Foundation is governed by a Board of Trustees. All donations to the UAH Foundation are confidential and protected from reallocation by the State of Alabama.

Donors can designate the specific program they would like their gift to benefit. However, endowed gifts are invested in The University of Alabama System Pooled Endowment Fund to maximize return.
