If you are looking to give to the college, there are multiple ways to contribute to the success of our students:  donate your time to our volunteer organization, Friends of the Arts, or establish a monetary gift with the Office of Development.

Founded in 1988, Friends of the Arts (FOA) is a nonprofit, volunteer organization that supports fine arts students and programs at UALR.  This includes music, art, and theatre arts and dance departments.  Friends of the Arts funds have supported annual student scholarships, department grants, and classroom improvements.

The Office of Development has several established methods by which you can contribute to student success. Ways of giving range from one time, outright gifts, deferred gifts, and planned giving, among others. Individuals, couples, groups, or other entities looking to give monetarily to UALR can earmark their gift to a number of specific funds, including the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences. The College uses this funding to develop and sponsor special projects in support of our students and faculty. Gifts can be made here.
