As a member of the 1885 Society, you will be recognized as an ambassador and champion of the University of Arizona.

Unrestricted funds comprise less than one percent of donations, yet give the UA’s leaders unparalleled ability to meet immediate needs while preparing to achieve long-term goals. All unrestricted gifts serve to advance the UA’s mission to improve the prospects and enrich the lives of the people of Arizona and the world through education, research, creative expression, and community and business partnerships.

Cumulative unrestricted gifts qualify donors. Annual contribution total is calculated based on the UA’s fiscal year beginning in July. Your spouse’s gifts and employer matches count toward membership.
