Welcome from Roger Pelham, President
Welcome to the website of the University of Birmingham USA Foundation. The site provides information about the Foundation, provides links to its sister organization – University of Birmingham USA Alumni Society, and provides ways for you to easily make a donation.
The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) registered charity in the USA. Formed in 1998 the Foundation has been successful in developing a greater sense of collective identity among US-based Birmingham alumni. We created scholarship programs to support current and future students at the University, and continue to promote the interests and welfare of the University. We work closely with the University’s Department of Alumni and Business Development (DABE) to support their fund raising goals, and we provide a convenient means for alumni to support the University with gifts in $US, donated under USA charity regulations.
We are conscious that our legal structure and much of our activity is based on support of the University, and the ensuing record keeping and annual reporting required under USA law. We also recognize that for many alumni, their first interest is meeting and networking with other Birmingham alumni in their city or region. As a result, in 2013 we formed our sister organization the University of Birmingham USA Alumni Society. The Society was formed to better handle the search for, and contacting of, USA based Alumni, and arranging social and networking events throughout the USA. The Society now has fifteen regional groups, and is expanding the range of activities and areas covered.
For more information on the Society and alumni events in your region please see the website at http://www.birmingham.ac.uk/alumni/ouralumni/international-alumni/index.aspx.
