Every year the Friends helps put on a wide variety of programs, including:
Food For Thought Lunchtime Lecture Series
Since 2019, the Friends have supported Alabama History Institutes, immersive professional development workshops in history and civics for
K-12 public, private, and homeschool educators.
Each year, the Friends of the Alabama Archives sponsors two $1,000 fellowships which are available to senior-level or graduate students in an Alabama college or university or to an Alabama resident in study at a school outside of the state.
ALABAMA HISTORY DAY
The Friends of the Alabama Archives awards a special prize for history research on each Alabama History Day.
The Friends regularly facilitate subventions for the publishing of books about Alabama history. One such book was Alabama Quilts: From Wilderness to WWII, 1682-1950 by Mary Elizabeth Johnson Huff and Carole Ann King.
The Friends of the Alabama Archives operates the Museum Store at the Archives and its online counterpart, Alabama Original.
