How to Give


The South Alabama Annual Fund enhances student scholarships, strengthens academic and health programs, enriches library services, promotes development and research initiatives, attracts visiting scholars and supports quality care and health resources for the entire community. Whether you choose to support the University’s area of greatest need or designate to a specific department or program, the option is yours. Remember it is not the size of your gift, rather, your participation that is most important.

An endowment is intended to permanently support the University. Endowments provide one of the most secure sources of future revenue because they produce income that the institution can depend on in perpetuity. When you create an endowment, your gift is preserved, invested wisely to create income for the ongoing support of the program you designate, such as a professorship, chair or scholarship. Your impact lives on forever, and you help ensure the continued success of the University for years to come.
Once you and your professional advisors have chosen the best plan to meet your needs and objectives, our knowledgeable staff can assist you in making your planned gift to USA. For more information, please visit our Planned Giving website:

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match charitable contributions or volunteer hours made by their employees. If your company has a matching program, simply request a matching gift form from your employer, and send it completed and signed with your gift. Some companies even match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses.
