Make Your Name Live on in Perpetuity

Since HudsonAlpha opened more than 10 years ago, philanthropy has played a key role in moving a vision to reality. HudsonAlpha researchers, experts in their fields, are working to solve some of the world’s most challenging problems. With your help, HudsonAlpha can continue to make groundbreaking discoveries. Researchers work each and every day because they know a healthier, more sustainable world is possible. Philanthropy is the vehicle that allows researchers to pursue new, innovative pathways and those results are then leveraged for greater support. We want you to be a part of the journey.

You not only get the satisfaction of helping HudsonAlpha create a healthier, more sustainable world, but donors also have several naming opportunities including positions, laboratories, common spaces or tributes. For a listing of opportunities, please contact the HudsonAlpha Foundation at foundation@hudsonalpha.org or 256-327-9446.

Name a position

To recruit and retain top talent, HudsonAlpha has launched a new campaign to secure endowed and named positions throughout the Institute. Supporting HudsonAlpha through a named position or fund helps strengthen research programs and enables faculty to pursue big ideas. When donors choose to support an endowment or other named position, they are making an impactful investment in HudsonAlpha.

Endowed Faculty Chairs

An endowed chair, named for the donor, is one of the highest honors a faculty member may receive. It also becomes a permanent way to recognize top donors and can be a source of pride for a family for perpetuity. This level of support ensures investment in research as it provides ongoing income for years to come.

Distinguished Scholars

The Scholars program supports distinguished researchers who are focused on high-impact, high-risk projects. Distinguished scholar gifts may be for three, four or five years and give chosen scientists an opportunity to pursue important research. These gifts are outright commitments for a shorter term than endowments and provide a way to recognize donors for investment at a significant level. They also allow donors to choose a targeted area to support.

Postdoctoral Fellowship

Post-doctoral fellowships help support some of the brightest minds who have earned their doctorates and are embarking on highly specialized research alongside faculty members at HudsonAlpha. Supporting these scientists helps leverage the expertise of HudsonAlpha’s thought leaders by supporting exciting experiments and up and coming young scientists. These gifts can be for either short-term commitments (two years) or endowed.

Graduate Student Fellowship

Graduate students play a key role in the work of any research institution. Faculty members rely on their support. Whether they go into industry or academia, graduate students’ career accomplishments highlight the quality of their experience. Gifts for these fellowships provide essential support to fuel the next generation of scientists and enhance the education of graduates from the University of Alabama at Birmingham, the University of Alabama in Huntsville, and Auburn University.
