Starting in 2017, a new classification was created to allow for recent graduates to serve on the Blackburn Institute’s Advisory Board. These board members must fulfill all obligations of serving on the Advisory Board, including the payment of annual dues to support student programming. In order to minimize this financial commitment, other Advisory Board members are asked to contribute to a matching fund for student donations; if students reach $250 in donations, this will be matched by Advisory Board members, eliminating this financial commitment.
To contribute to this fund, give online and include “Recent Grad AB Member” on the tribute line. Additionally, checks may be made payable to “The University of Alabama” with “Recent Grad AB Member” on the memo line. Mail checks to the following address:
Up to three nominations are forwarded to the advisory board for consideration and selection of one new member each April for a term to begin in the following January.
