The Bailey Foundation

The Bailey Foundation’s valued partnership with UALR includes financial support, community service initiatives, and leadership on numerous boards and committees. The Baileys served on UALR’s Board of Visitors, Foundation Fund Board and founded Friends of the Arts and the Society of Philanthropy.

In addition to sponsoring the Faculty Excellence Award in Teaching, the Baileys financed the alumni center at UALR that is named in their honor. UALR is better able to support its mission thanks to the Baileys’ generosity.


Pepsi is in the final year of an exclusive seven-year agreement to provide soft drinks and other beverages to the UALR campus. Pepsi continues to provide significant annual support for athletics, student services, and scholarships. This support includes non-traditional student scholarships, the Staff Senate Helping Hands Project, and the annual Faculty Excellence Awards.
