Why Give to the Department of English?


UAlbany donors provide vital support to students and faculty in their scholarly endeavors, and enrich the educational and research initiatives for which UAlbany is so well known. Last year alone, thanks to the generosity of our supporters, we were able to provide more than $470,000 in scholarship support to more than 350 students; offer prizes and awards totaling nearly $118,000 to students, faculty and staff; and fund faculty training and recruitment, workshops, lectures and other program enhancements.

There are many ways for you to promote vital initiatives at our University. Through the UAlbany Fund, you may make a general contribution, or direct your gift toward a particular program, interest or endowment. Or you may elect to link your own name, or that of a loved one, with the University in perpetuity by establishing a named scholarship or fellowship endowment, a professorship, a prize or award fund, or another form of support.

Gifts and pledges in all amounts – and in many forms (cash, real estate and life insurance, to name a few) – are welcome.  You can make a gift online or over the phone toll free at 1-800-577-7869. 

For more information, please feel free to contact us at uafund@albany.edu.

Thank you for your interest in the University at Albany!
