Giving to SLAT



Support SLAT Students and Programs at the UA!

Donations to SLAT are tax-deductable, payable to the University of Arizona Foundation, a 501-C3 organization. Donations to SLAT are used to support:

  • Conference travel for current SLAT students
  • Student recruitment
  • Faculty appreciation
  • SLAT publicity

Donors may specify the preferred use of their funds. In addition, donors may indicate whether their donation includes matching funds from an employer, whether the donation is given in honor of an individual or organization, and whether they wish to donate anonymously. The University of Arizona Foundation online giving site facilitates the selection of these options.

In addition to donating to the general fund, SLAT welcomes donations to two specific fundraising campaigns:

1) In memory of Tamara Boyens:  In January 2017, SLAT lost Tamara Boyens, a SLAT Ph.D. candidate, under tragic conditions. SLAT welcomes donations in her honor and memory.  If you would like to contribute to SLAT in Tamara's memory please follow the donation instructions below.  When donating online, please feel free to indicate on the bottom of the form that this donation is in memory of Tamara Boyens.  If submitting a donation by check, please indicate "SLAT Program Fund - Student Support" in the memo line.  Funds designated as "student support" funds will be recognized as contributions in Tami's honor.  SLAT will award a scholarship to a SLAT student specifically in Tami's honor with these funds..

2) Research funds in honor of Linda R. Waugh:  SLAT Faculty emerita Linda Waugh, long time SLAT Chair and contributing faculty member, makes funds available each year to provide research support for SLAT students.  If you would like to contribute to Dr. Waugh's support of SLAT student research projects, please follow the donation instructions below.  In the comments line of the online form, or on the memo line of your check, please indicate: "SLAT Program Fund - Research" so we may allocate your donation accordingly.
