Giving

Dear Friends,

We’re so grateful for the support our program receives from our alumni and others.  Simply put, we could not sustain our current efforts without those contributions!  Your donations help fund research travel for History undergraduate and graduate students, awards for student excellence, our student-run history journal (Alpata), the History Honors program, faculty research, visiting speakers, and much more.

You can give online to History at UF. Contributions to the general fund (002615) help support a variety of student and faculty programs in the department, and are most welcome. Please click here to contribute. Please also note that you may use the “Comments” section of the online giving form to designate a gift to go to one of the department’s specific funds. I’ve listed below some funds of critical importance.

Of course, you may also contribute via regular mail. Please send your tax-deductible donations to:

University of Florida Foundation
PO Box 14425
Gainesville, Florida 32614-2425

Please indicate the fund that you wish to support on the memo line of your check.

Finally, you may wish to consider creating a new endowment, to support something of particular interest. We’re always delighted to discuss new giving opportunities, and would welcome hearing from you.

On behalf of the staff, students, and faculty of the Department of History, thank you!

Sean Adams
Department Chair

SPECIFIC DEPARTMENT FUNDS

Pozzetta Memorial Fund (005505): Created to honor the memory of our late colleague, Dr. George Pozzetta, this fund is one of the primary sources of support for History graduate student travel.  These travel funds are critical for students to conduct research, and present papers at conferences.

History Alumni Research Fund (014613): Department of History alumni created this fund, to support faculty research and conference travel.  This is a vitally important fund, for it helps keep our program at the cutting edge of historical research—work which advances our understanding of the past, and which helps make graduate and undergraduate education at UF a special experience.  You can read the latest annual report on the fund here.

History Honors Fund (014289): This fund was created to support our very successful department Honors Program. Students who are accepted by this program spend their senior year conducting research and writing a thesis under the supervision of department faculty and present their findings at a symposium held in the spring.

Bridget Bernadette Phillips Scholarship Fund (003477): Named for an outstanding former History student, the Phillips Fund helps to support current UF History majors to travel abroad to further their education.  This fund has supported many excellent students over the years, and we welcome your support to further this important mission.
