Help Support the UGLA Scholarship Program!

Thanks to the generosity of people like you, we had a successful 2021 program. For this program to continue into 2022 and beyond, we need your support! With our expansion to awards for applicants pursuing two-year degrees or vocational certificates, your support is as important as ever. Each of us can help make a difference for our youth as they pursue their dreams and help build a better future for all of us. Every dollar helps. 100% of all donations goes toward UGLA scholarships. You can make a donation in any amount. By making a donation of $1,000 or more,  you can establish a named scholarship “in honor of” or “in memory of” someone special to you.We would like to list you as a donor to the UGLA Scholarship Program. If you create a named scholarship with a donation of $1,000 or more, the name of your scholarship will also be listed. UGLA will not disclose the amount of your gift.

If you’d rather not be listed as a donor, follow the instructions to opt out as you complete the donation process.

Donate online with a credit/debit card or PayPal

To use a credit card, debit card, or your PayPal account, you will click on the “Donate” button at the end of these instructions. 

The first thing you will see is a screen similar to this.

Fill in the dollar amount for your gift. Then select “Donate with PayPal” or “Donate with a Debit or Credit Card”.

With either option, you will soon arrive at a screen that shows the amount you entered…in this example, $50.

  • If you selected “… Debit or Credit Card”, fill in the details of your card.
  • If you selected “… PayPal”, simply verify the details of your PayPal account.

Now … and this is important … on either the debit/credit card screen or the PayPal screen, you will see the text “Write a note” below your donation amount. It could be a bit difficult to see, but it’s there.

To assure that UGLA handles your donation according to your wishes, click on the “Write a note” text and enter one or more of the  messages, as appropriate.

  • “Scholarship” if you are making a general donation
  • The name of your scholarship … if you are creating a named scholarship with a donation of $1,000 or more
  • “Do not list” … if you’d rather your name not be listed with other donors

 And now, click …

UGLA thanks you! Our youth thank you!
