Bookmark and Share

​Gifts to Alabama A&M University through the AAMU Foundation come from alumni, families, and friends. These annual, unrestricted gifts directly sustain the student experience, supporting financial aid, faculty and academic programs, athletics, and culture and community. By making an annual gift through the Foundation, you support Alabama A&M's efforts to help solve the world's toughest problems by nurturing better human beings.


Your gifts impacts:


  • Faculty who love to teach undergraduates and the staff who assist them
  • Out-of-classroom opportunities such as athletics, student programs, student services, and residential life
  • Financial aid, which assists many student’s demonstrated need
  • A modern campus that facilities learning and community
  • Opportunities for students and faculty to engage in the discovery of knowledge


Your gift matters:


Every gift helps the University raise money.

  • Corporations and foundations, which provide millions of dollars in support to Universities, base their awards more on alumni participation than on total dollars raised. Every alumni gift—including yours—has a multiplier effect.


Every gift enables the University to save money.

  • Bond rating agencies factor-in alumni participation when determining the interest rate Alabama A&M will pay when it borrows money. Every alumni gift—including yours—means less money paid out.


Every gift supports the University's national ranking.

  • Publications such as US News and World Report consider Alumni participation in giving when affirming their ranking. Every alumni gift—including yours—affects Alabama A&M's potential for excellence.


Participation is contagious.

  • By showing through your annual gift that Alabama A&M matters to you, you make Alabama A&M matter to others.
