Naturally Inspiring


Each year, several events are sponsored by the Development Office to celebrate the generosity of those who choose to include UAF in their giving priorities. The annual Celebration of Giving and the Annual Scholarship and Award Breakfast are two of our most popular events.

Celebration of Giving and Emil Usibelli Awards

2013 Celebration of Giving logo

This event is a celebration of you — the individuals, corporations and foundations whose philanthropic gifts are imperative to UAF's success. Your dedication to our mission is reflected in our top-notch programs, world-renowned research, diverse outreach and essential scholarships. This event is our way of thanking you for changing lives and inspiring future leaders.

The Emil Usibelli Distinguished Teaching, Research and Service Awards are among the university’s most prestigious awards. They represent UAF’s tripartite mission and are funded annually from an endowment established by the Usibelli Coal Mine in 1992.

Annual Scholarship Breakfast

It is inspiring to see students and donors together, sharing the impact of the outstanding opportunities that are made possible with the generous support of UAF donors. This event is an opportunity for scholarship donors and recipients get to know one another over breakfast.
