How Pick.Click.Give. makes a difference
Gifts to the University of Alaska Fairbanks and it’s campuses support the university’s areas of greatest need, including scholarships, fellowships, equipment, facilities maintenance and renovation, research and faculty recruitment and retention. As important as the funds are, equally significant is the spirit and generosity they represent. Through gifts to UAF through the Pick.Click.Give Program, UAF friends, alumni and community members demonstrate their regard for UAF, for the Fairbanks community and their desire to help current students. This tradition of giving back is what UAF is building within in an effort to connect our communities with each other and our future generations of students.
At UAF last year, 4,500 alumni and friends made a commitment to student success and were part of creating our future leaders and workforce. Their support was reflected in these areas and more:
• Over 450 privately funded scholarships that help students pursue their educational goals and reduce debt.
• High-quality educational programs that position our students for future opportunities.
• Pre-college experiential learning opportunities including Alaska Business Week, Alaska Summer Research Academy, GeoFORCE Alaska, Rural Alaska Honors Institute and the Summer Music Academy.
• Programs in our engineering and technology labs that offer state-of-the-art equipment and hands-on learning opportunities to ready students for the workforce.
• The student phonathon, where current students reach out to alumni and friends for support through the Annual Giving program.
• Over 130 donors who have included UAF in their estate plans today so that we have a secure tomorrow.
We thank all of our current supporters for their commitment to student success and encourage all of our alumni and community members to consider supporting UAF through the Pick. Click. Give program.
