Our annual fund is dedicated to enriching the lives of current and future students, and to making a positive difference in their overall university experience.

The foundation of UNA was laid in 1830 with the establishment of LaGrange College. Each year since, that foundation has been strengthened by those who are most dedicated to the success and to the future of this institution. Today, through the 1830 Fund, UNA’s largest source of unrestricted support, thousands of students are depending on you to enhance their university experience and help reduce their financial burden.

Relying on state funding alone, is no where near sufficient. Unfortunately, UNA total funding per full-time student equivalent is ranked 12 out of the 14 public colleges in Alabama and last when in comparison to similarly sized institutions. The state support we receive is 22.8% below the median (Fall 2016; See chart below).

This is one major reason why the 1830 Fund at UNA is so important. Built by gifts from loyal alumni and friends like you, the 1830 Fund helps bridge the gap that is widening between state funding and state universities like UNA. Without you, this gap will hold students back from the education they need and deserve.

Your gifts to the 1830 Fund will build student scholarships as well as vital university programs, study-abroad opportunities, faculty research, new facilities, upgrades for classroom and research technology, and much, much more.

Donors of Distinction

At UNA, we want to honor those who are most committed to a strong foundation for the university. That's why we want to reserve your spot at the exclusive Donors of Distinction Dinner. Gifts of $2,500 or greater made during the fiscal year, Oct. 1 - Sept. 30, will merit an invitation. This annual event features special musical entertainment, fine dining, and updates from President Ken Kitts. Guests who have reached a lifetime cumulative giving of at least $100,000 will also be recognized and welcomed into the Leadership Circle. In addition to the Donors of Distinction Dinner, you will be honored in the Annual Donor Report, published each year.
