Ways to Give

How to Give to the UAlbany-SUNY School of Social Welfare 

Restricted or Unrestricted?

The choice is yours. With an unrestricted gift, you give the School the financial flexibility it must have to meet the greatest need at the right time—thus fulfilling our mission to create change in the world. By designating a specific fund (like scholarships or research), you ensure that your donation goes to the cause that you care about most.

Giving Online

Use our secure online giving site to make your gift now.  Select a designation.  In the comments section, note the specific scholarship or fund.

Giving by Phone

Please call University Development (1-800-577-7869) to charge your gift to your credit card. MasterCard, Visa, American Express, and Discover are accepted. Mention the School of Social Welfare (and any specific fund you designate) as the recipient of your gift.

Giving by Mail

Download and fill out the Donor Form (PDF or MS-Word).   Make the check payable to The University at Albany Foundation.  Write "School of Social Welfare" for an unrestricted donation, or the name of the scholarship or fund of your choice in the memo section of your check. Mail to:

Using the Employer Match

You can double—or even triple—the impact of your gift if your employer (or your spouse’s employer) participates in a Corporate Matching Gifts program. Ask your human resources or personnel office for a gift form, then include the completed form with your contribution. To find out if your employer has a matching gift program, use our matching gift search engine.
