Support the Social Work Society Annual Fund

The Social Work Society Annual Fund enables the Dean of the School of Social Work to direct resources where they are most immediately needed. Contributions to the Social Work Society Annual Fund provide for many of the School’s needs that could not be met otherwise, including student scholarships, support for faculty research, technological enhancements for our classrooms, and underwriting for publications.

Supporters of the Annual Fund include alumni, concerned citizens, faculty, students, agencies, and corporations. The Annual Fund is represented by an elected board, the Social Work Society.

Establish a New Scholarship

We welcome our alumni and supporters to establish new scholarships at The University of Alabama School of Social Work to help ensure continued excellence in our programs. By structuring your gifts, you can help make meaningful contributions while meeting personal planning goals. Our development officer can help you:

  • Discover ways to make larger gifts than you may have thought possible.
  • Learn how to make gifts that actually “give back” for a time, providing extra income in retirement years or helping to fund educational expenses and other needs.
  • Add special meaning to your gift by making a gift that honors a special friend or loved one.
  • See how to save money on income, gift, and estate taxes and instead put those amounts to use in ways you choose.
  • Enjoy giving more, knowing that you’re investing in the lives of young people in ways that make it possible for you to give the most you can at the lowest possible cost.
