Making a Difference: Maria Williams

Maria Williams

Maria Williams has seen first-hand the impact of private giving on her program and in the lives of her students. She gives back to UAA because the university is more than just a workplace; it's a community of educators working together to build better lives for our students, and a better future for our state.

"There are a lot of places you can work that are just jobs, but I feel like at UAA we're larger than that. UAA is itself part of the greater community of Anchorage. When you support the university, you’re giving where you live.

"As an employee, I choose to support our community through payroll deduction. Having my donation spread throughout the year has the least impact on my finances. It's important to me to give back to UAA, and I love that I can do it so painlessly."

Join colleagues, like Maria, who stepped up to show their support for student success by making a tax-deductible gift to the UAA fund of your choice. Whether you give through payroll deduction or make a one-time donation, your gift makes a difference.
