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.

Blue and Gold Celebration

2024 date TBA

The Blue and Gold Celebration salutes the strong connection between UAF and the Fairbanks community. UAF would not be here if it weren’t for the support of our alumni and friends, and our shared history creates incredible connections that we are proud to applaud.
