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. Please contact your benefits department to find out if your company has a matching gift policy.

Please follow the online instructions provided by your employer or print matching gift forms and send 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. If you have questions or need more information about matching gifts, contact Lisa Bevis at 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 – held January through April and August through November – 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 or 256.824.6853.
