“University of North Alabama Advancement believes that the keys to success in any endeavor are people and the relationships we have with them. On March 1st, UNA Advancement launched the month-long 1830 Giving Day Initiative. The purpose of the initiative is to give everyone the opportunity to experience the true joy of giving while empowering our great University, faculty, staff, and students to become all they are capable of becoming.  We invite you to become one of the 1,830 donors who give a gift of at least $10 as part of the 1830 giving day initiative; join us by giving a gift to the area of campus that means the most to you and receive a commemorative 1830 Giving Day Initiative challenge coin. When the Lion Pride gives back to the University of North Alabama, we all move forward.”

Frequently Asked Questions:

Do I have to give to a specific fund?

No, philanthropy is all about the donor. The goal with philanthropy is to find the purpose that speaks to the heart of the donor and blesses those the philanthropist intends to serve with their gift.

How can I give?

A popular option for faculty & staff is payroll deduction. You can also make a one-time cash gift.

Can I give in memory or in honor of someone?

Is my gift tax deductible?

All gifts to UNA are tax deductible to the extent allowable by law.

Are there administrative costs?

Yes, there are administrative costs. All current-use funds are subject to a 5% administrative fee for each contribution. Endowed funds are subject to an annual administrative fee of 1.5% of the annual distribution date market value.
