Endowments are gifts that keep on giving. The goal of fully endowing the Athletics scholarship program is a top priority of the Crimson Tide Foundation to ensure that each student-athlete has access to a quality education to prepare them for a successful future. Endowments are invested by the University and a portion of the earnings provides annual scholarship support. The remaining earnings are reinvested to grow the endowment over time and to provide scholarship support in perpetuity.
As costs for scholarships continue to climb, building a healthy endowment is vital to the future of Alabama Athletics. Endowed scholarships cover tuition, educational fees, books, and room and board for our student-athletes. Named scholarship opportunities for donors are available in the following ranges:
- Partial Scholarship Endowment $25,000-$299,999
- Full Scholarship Endowment $300,000+
In addition to endowed scholarships, other endowments may be established in support of Alabama Athletics specified for teams, individual positions, coaching positions, facility maintenance or general program support.
Gifts may be pledged and paid over a period of up to five years. If you are interested in creating an endowment (scholarship or otherwise), please contact us at (205) 348-9727 or request someone to contact you.
