UA Giving Day 2021

We invite all University of Alaska friends, alumni, and advocates to join us in celebrating the second annual UA Giving Day starting on November 9, 2021! We are celebrating 49 hours for Alaska. For a 49 hour period you can support a program or area you care about at UAA, UAF, or UAS. Gifts of all sizes add up to have a big impact for students, faculty and our entire University community. It's your participation that matters!


Visit the pages listed below to make your gift. Choose where you want to direct your gift: life changing scholarships, cutting-edge research and outstanding academic programs need your help.


When you make your gift, don’t forget to share your story with family and friends on social media and encourage them to join us.  Use #49hoursforAlaska. You may also hear from many of your friends who are supporting their favorite programs during UA Giving Day.


Now more than ever, it’s our time to celebrate the strength and resiliency of the University of Alaska community. Together we can build a brighter future ... for Alaska.  Join us with your gift today!
