The University of Memphis Advancement Division fosters mutually beneficial relationships
with alumni, friends, donors, and civic and corporate partners. Our Development unit coordinates and implements fundraising programs through annual giving, major
and planned gifts. Our comprehensive Alumni & Constituent Relations program promotes lifelong meaningful connections between alumni and their alma mater
and engages community friends and supporters. In partnership with and under the auspices
of the University of Memphis Foundation, the division maintains, stewards and invests private resources and distributes them
to University programs in accordance with donor directives.
The Advancement Division takes pride in the continued growth of fundraising and alumni
participation, currently at an institutional high. We continue to build fundraising
capacity, to provide exceptional donor relations and stewardship, to inspire and cultivate
alumni affinity and involvement, and to enhance the image and reputation of the University
We are grateful for your support of our students and faculty, our research, and our
programs in both academics and athletics. Thank you for advancing the mission of the
University of Memphis through your involvement and investment.
