Alabama State University Foundation, Inc.

The mission of the Alabama State University Foundation, Inc. (ASUF) is to perpetuate a viable organization that will support the educational needs and goals of Alabama State University, its faculty and students via responsible management of financial programs.

The Alabama State University Foundation was chartered under the law of the State of Alabama on December 27, 1967, as a non-profit, educational corporation to encourage, receive, and administer gifts for the exclusive benefit of Alabama State University, its students, and its staff. Such gifts may be cash, securities, leases, royalties, literary and artistic collections, and real or personal property. No matter its size or nature, each gift is fully appreciated and warmly remembered. The wishes of each donor will be scrupulously followed.

Contributions to the Foundation are exempt from Federal Income Tax, free from State control, and do not displace tax funds.
