Development’s mission is to fundraise for the University of Alaska Fairbanks in order to support UAF’s greater mission of education, research and cultural outreach that it fulfills every day. As part of our shared goal of providing a high-quality education, increasing workforce development, and ensuring a brighter future for all Alaskans, Development is committed to reducing student debt to make education accessible and affordable.
Chancellor's Report on Philanthropy
In recognition of the many partners who make the success of UAF's mission their personal priority, we publish this report three times per year. Please take a look at the amazing donors and supporters who help us make a high-quality UAF education affordable for students, with the goal of a better future for all Alaskans.
There are many Ways to Give – and countless ways to change lives and make an impact.

Your gift to the University of Alaska is a special one, and we would be pleased to discuss it with you. There are various options for directing your gift to a particular fund or for a purpose that is important to you and reflects your values and commitment. Feel free to contact us for more information or to discuss your ideas and intentions for supporting UAF’s mission and our students, faculty and staff.
Part of the role of Development is to ensure our donors that their gifts are being used in the manner that they wished. To that end, our Stewardship program is devoted to keeping donors and friends of UAF informed and aware of the uses of their gifts, with annual reports and gift receipts from
UA Foundation, as well as through acknowledgment, events, publications and special announcements.
