Give to the Institute

Your gift to the Institute for LGBT Studies, whether large or small, is vital.  The work of the UA Institute for LGBT Studies is not possible without private support! 

Your contribution will be used for general support of our ongoing work in research and scholarship, curriculum development, fellowships and community outreach. You may also contact us about making special designated gifts for endowments, scholarships, or specific programs.  

There are lots of ways you can give – ranging from outright gifts of cash, check, or credit card to appreciated securities or property. And don’t forget to check to see if your employer matches gifts! We also welcome gifts made through bequests, life insurance, and gifts that can provide you with a life income. 

If you have questions about giving to the Institute, please contact Jeffrey Fischer-Smith, Director of Development, at (520) 626-3231 or
