What is UCA Day of Giving?

UCA Day of Giving was a 24-hour drive on March 16, 2017. We are challenging all alumni, parents, faculty, staff and students to join us for UCA’s third annual day of giving.  In just 24 hours, we can build a stronger UCA.

How can I give?

Please consider making a gift of any amount to the UCA Day of Giving campaign by giving online or by calling 501-450-5859.  Day of Giving only lasts 24 hours and every gift will make a difference!

What is the UCA Fund?

Each year, the UCA Fund is put to immediate use funding student scholarships, program enhancements, research grants and more depending on the University’s greatest need. The UCA Fund makes a big impact campus wide. Help us make it bigger!

Where does the money raised go?

Student Impact
  • Funds scholarships for students in financial need
  • Classes get hands-on experience in a real world environment
Campus Impact
  • Funds faculty and student research projects
  • Provides classrooms with state-of-the-art equipment
Community Impact
  • Allows experiential and service-learning opportunities
  • Brings a guest lecturer, first class exhibits and performances to campus for the UCA community and surrounding areas

Why are private funds needed?

There has never been more pressure on universities to increase private funding as state funding remains flat. The UCA Fund makes the difference when state money runs out. Whatever the greatest need is at that time, the only way make up the difference is through private support.
