Pick.Click.Give to UA up 12% for 2013
The University of Alaska Foundation is grateful to all Alaskans who made gifts to the University of Alaska through Pick.Click.Give. Pledges to all UA campuses totaled $28,425, an increase of 12% over 2012. This amount will be matched by ExxonMobil, for a total of nearly $57,000 raised! Thank you!
UA Foundation awards migratory bird research grant
The University of Alaska Foundation announces Tyler Lewis and Adam DuBour as the recipients of the 2013 Angus Gavin Memorial Migratory Bird Research Grant.
Lewis and DuBour, post-graduate students in biological sciences and wildlife biology at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, received the $15,000 award with their joint proposal entitled “Ecosystem Change in Boreal Wetlands and its Relation to Waterbirds: the Importance of Aquatic Invertebrates” and “Feeding Ecology of Lesser Scaup Ducklings in the Boreal Forest: An Examination of a Trophic Mismatch.” The concurrent projects collaborate on research related to management and conservation of waterbirds on the Yukon Flats National Wildlife Refuge, Alaska. Both projects examine relationships between waterbirds and their aquatic food sources and how such relationships may be influenced by recent climate change.
ExxonMobil supports higher education in Alaska through Pick.Click.Give
ExxonMobil has again offered an amazing matching gift to encourage donations to Alaska colleges and universities during the 2013 Pick.Click.Give. campaign. Every contribution to any of the campuses of the University of Alaska, Ilisagvik College, and Alaska Pacific University will be matched one-to-one up to $100,000.
Please consider making a gift of all or a portion of your PFD to support higher education. Your personal gift, combined with ExxonMobil’s matching contribution, has the power to change lives. All across our great state, lives are changed every day at the University of Alaska. Your support is critical to our efforts to provide a high-quality education to our students, contribute to solving local and global issues through research and dissemination of knowledge, and improve the quality of life for all Alaskans.
This matching gift is just one way ExxonMobil supports programs that encourage students to take an active interest in math and science. We appreciate their generous donations.

Restricted Gift Guidance from the UA Foundation
This past spring the UA Foundation created a new “soft ledger” option as a way to accept restricted gifts into general support funds at the Foundation. This new method allowed departments to track the spending of such restricted gifts while the UA Foundation and our auditors could monitor the tracking on a password-protected shared drive. This option was created as a workaround for some previous issues that arose when using the MAU’s Restricted Donation Holding accounts. These “RDH” accounts were created years ago specifically to track such restricted gifts.
