Southern Arkansas University Foundation is pleased to assist in raising and managing funds and resources on behalf of Southern Arkansas University to be used exclusively in furthering the literary, scientific, and educational purposes of the university. Gifts to SAUF are tax-deductible under the IRS 501 (c) (3) designation and may be in the form of cash, securities, stocks, or other tangible property.
Annual gifts are transferred to the University and expended for current programs.
An endowment is a permanent fund that provides annual income to the University for the purpose established by the donor. A named endowment offers a special opportunity to commemorate one’s affinity for SAU. It is also a thoughtful way of honoring or memorializing a family member, a former teacher, or other individual who has made a significant contribution to the University or to one’s life.
A donor may designate SAUF as a beneficiary of their estate by naming the University in a will, as an insurance beneficiary, or through other types of estate planning.
