Leave a Legacy 

A gift to the UACCB Foundation has the power to fund students' education in perpetuity. The gift minimum to establish a scholarship endowment is $15,000. Endowments are named for their donor, or an alternative honoree of the donor's selection. 

All UACCB endowments reside within the University of Arkansas (Fayetteville) Investment Pool, one of the highest performing portfolios amongst all national institutions of higher education.

The strong performance history of our endowments means higher returns on your investment, which in turn, means more scholarships are funded.
