Contributions to the Foundation support almost every aspect of UofL, making it the conduit for the changing academic landscape of the University. Gifts to the Foundation endow scholarships, chairs and professorships, foster athletic programs, research, student activities and international exchange experiences, and support University libraries. Meanwhile, the Foundation provides the funding to special projects, including Bucks for Brains, and the James Graham Brown Cancer Center.

“The UofL Foundation is critical to the University’s success. The University relies on the Foundation to invest and grow funds that support ongoing programs and initiatives that improve and enhance the University experience for our students.” 

— Shirley Willihnganz, University Provost
