Ways of Giving

There are many ways that you can make an impact with your gift to the College. Two of these are the Collegiate Fund and endowments.

The Collegiate Fund

The Collegiate Fund invests in the education of the College’s students; for those who give to it, the fund is also a way to continue the traditions of excellence and opportunity for which the College is known. The Collegiate Fund provides scholarships to students, travel and teaching grants for faculty, and funding to departments for special equipment, technology, guest lecturers, and more.

Join us in enriching the academic life of the College of Arts & Sciences by contributing to the Collegiate Fund. Give to the fund now, contribute to the Collegiate Fund Endowment, or contact Allison Verhine, Director of College Support Boards, at (205) 348-7009 or allison.verhine@ua.edu. You can also find detailed information about ways to give at giving.ua.edu.


An endowment to the College of Arts and Sciences is a gift that is intended to permanently support a College program chosen by the donor. The endowment fund remains intact in perpetuity, while its earnings support students, faculty, and programs designated by the donor.

Endowments allow the College to create and maintain excellence in academics beyond what can be accomplished with funding from the state. Endowments provide the funds for scholarships, fellowships, professorships, academic chairs, libraries, and programs that serve as crucial elements in student and faculty recruitment and retention. 

For more information about endowments, contact Kathy Yarbrough, Director of Development, at (205) 348-0696 or kyarbrough@as.ua.edu. You can also find detailed information about ways to give at giving.ua.edu.
