Congratulations, Class of 2018!
Welcome to the family!
There are many ways for recent grads to give back and get involved with the University of Arkansas.
Arkansas Alumni Association
Joining the Arkansas Alumni Association is the best way to stay connected to your Razorback family. Whether you're attending a PIGnic with your local chapter, supporting student scholarships through membership or visiting your home on the Hill at Homecoming, come together and show your pride!
Campaign Arkansas is the university's $1.25 billion comprehensive campaign to advance academic opportunity at the U of A. All gifts count toward Campaign Arkansas and will help students access higher education and foster their success through mentoring and scholarship initiatives. The campaign will also build meaningful resources for teaching and research, grow innovative and collaborative programs and enhance our facilities and technology. Every gift - and every amount - makes a difference, and everyone can participate. The beauty of Campaign Arkansas is that you can give to any area that is meaningful to you. Just visit https://onlinegiving.uark.edu to get started.
Did scholarship support play a role in funding your education? If so, consider paying it forward by contributing to the Advance Arkansas scholarship initiative, which creates campus-wide scholarship endowments to support new, returning and transfer students from Arkansas who exhibit some financial need, a record of academic success, and a strong desire to complete their degree at the university.
All In for Arkansas
Held each spring, All In for Arkansas is the university's global day of giving that coincides with the U of A's birthday. Sign up now to be a social media ambassador for next year's event and celebrate the university through this exciting party with a purpose.
The Chancellor's Society is the university's most prestigious annual giving group, comprised of some of the U of A's most loyal, generous, and passionate benefactors. Members are invited to an annual soiree, hosted by the chancellor each fall, to celebrate the impact of their generosity. Members also receive a limited edition, custom-designed holiday ornament of a U of A campus building or landmark to commemorate each year of membership in the society. Recognition begins at cumulative giving of $2,000 or more annually, but recent graduates (within five years) qualify for membership at a level of $500.
Women's Giving Circle
The Women's Giving Circle are alumnae and friends who recognize that women as donors have the capability of making a tremendous impact on the University of Arkansas, its students, faculty, and staff. Members pool their funds annually and award grants to deserving projects on campus through an annual voting event, where each member has equal voting rights. Current students and recent graduates (within the past five years) are eligible to join this group at a special rate of $500 annually. Gifts received by August 30 enable members to vote in the current funding cycle, and gifts made after August 30 will qualify members for the next grants cycle. Join here.
Loyalty matters! The Thoroughreds recognition program celebrates donors who give through the Annual Fund year after year, regardless of the amount. Start your giving tradition today, and before long you'll be recognized for going the distance.
