The Alabama Power Foundation has given $500,000 to the University of South Alabama to help support construction of the new Frederick P. Whiddon College of Medicine.

The building, currently under construction, is scheduled for completion in early 2027.

“Alabama Power and its foundation have been strong and steadfast supporters of our Frederick P. Whiddon College of Medicine and the University of South Alabama,” USA President Jo Bonner said. “Countless students – and through their education, generations of Alabamians – will benefit from the foundation’s gifts. We extend our heartfelt thanks and gratitude for the generous support for this new building and our programs.”

Alabama Power’s latest donation brings the foundation’s contributions to USA to more than $2.6 million.

USA broke ground in December on the Whiddon building, a 250,000-square-foot, $200 million project.
