The UAH Foundation (formerly Research Sites Foundation) was formed in 1956, thirteen years prior to UAH becoming an autonomous institution within the UA System. The UAH Foundation is a private nonprofit corporation that supplements the university’s fundraising activities and whose sole mission is to serve UAH. Its private donors are a vital part of the UAH support system.

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 may designate the specific program they would like their gift to benefit. Endowed gifts are invested in The University of Alabama System Pooled Endowment Fund to maximize return.
