Support the UIC Foundation

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused significant economic struggles for many people, families, and corporations, to name a few. Now, more than ever, contributing to the education of our youth is paramount.

The UIC Foundation is a private, non-profit organization committed to providing higher education resources for Iñupiat students. We understand that for many people who are financially impacted by the virus, supporting non-profits during this time isn’t an option. However, for those who are in a position to assist financially, the UIC Foundation could use your help!
