Ways to Give

We are dedicated to providing Auburn men and women with a world-class education — ensuring our graduates leave campus not only technically competent, but also globally aware and socially engaged. Human Sciences students are inspired to be fearless in pursuit of their dreams and relentless in seeking solutions to life’s everyday problems and to the global grand challenges of our time. Our mission, Science for a Quality Life, becomes Mission Possible through the loyal support of our alumni and friends. We thank you for your generosity and for your commitment to help Auburn’s next generation succeed in a rapidly changing world.

Annual Gifts
The Auburn Fund oversees Auburn’s various annual giving programs and provides our donors with convenient ways to support Auburn with contributions online, by phone, or through the mail. It also coordinates Auburn’s giving programs geared specifically for parents, students, and university faculty and staff.

Endowed Gifts
Endowed gifts create a legacy of philanthropic support since they are held and invested to produce income to be used for a donor-designated purpose. The original principal remains intact and unspent in perpetuity, with the earnings on the invested principal distributed to the university purpose specified by the donor.

Planned Gifts
Planned gifts, also known as estate gifts or bequests, allow donors to support Auburn at the time of their death. Giving in this manner offers the donor a number of financial and/or tax benefits, and can include real property, stocks, retirement plan assets, charitable remainder trusts, gift annuities, and partnership interests.
