Help support UAF students, programs during 2023 Giving Day

The UAF community is invited to participate in UA Giving Day 2023 on Feb. 22-23. This online fundraising event is a chance for alumni, students, faculty, staff and friends to support UAF.

Many of you helped raise more than $1 million for the 2021 UA Giving Day for Alaska’s universities. During that event, about 750 alumni, donors and supporters took the time to give a combined $664,000 to support students and programs at UAF.

This year, we want to increase the number of UAF champions to help make a positive impact on our students' lives. You can help meet this goal by signing up as a UAF champion for Giving Day 2023.

Other ways to get involved include making a gift on Giving Day and sharing your story with friends and family on social media and other communication channels. You can also help recruit champions by reaching out to your friends, family and peers to ask them to join us.

UA Giving Day 2023 is a collaborative effort between the University of Alaska Foundation and Alaska’s three universities. It is an opportunity to encourage the community to come together in a show of support for the University of Alaska. Donations of all sizes are welcome.

The UA Giving Day website,, has tools for champions to help share the event through digital and social media channels. The website will track overall dollars and donors generated during UA Giving Day, as well as gifts to schools and colleges, programs and designated funds. Posts about UA Giving Day across social media channels using the hashtag #49HoursForAlaska will be featured on the site.
