Giving Tuesday 2021 (November 30)

GivingTuesday reimagines a world built upon shared humanity and generosity. Whether it’s making someone smile, helping a neighbor or stranger out, showing up for an issue or people we care about, or giving some of what we have to those who need our help, every act of generosity counts, and everyone has something to give. Please consider giving to The University of Alabama Museums!

Visitors learn about plants at the Museums’ free public Halloween event, “A Haunting at the Museum.”

The generous support and continued involvement of our friends allow us to do more in research, educate students better, and more actively serve the local, state, national, and international community.

Your gifts and support of our programs can add to and enhance what we are able to do. With your help we can

  • award scholarships and supplemental support to outstanding students in order to bring the best national and international students to The University of Alabama and to improve their ability to accomplish world-class research
  • enable students to attend academic conferences to present their research and enhance both their own research visibility and that of The University of Alabama
  • bring in nationally and internationally renowned guest speakers for high quality public talks for the University and the community

No matter the amount, the support of our friends and alumni is important to us. Please consider making a gift to UA Museums today.
