The Senior Class Gift is your opportunity to give back to American University. Without private support, the education you received would have been immeasurably different. This is your chance to express your appreciation for AU while continuing the important tradition of philanthropy. This outstanding tradition unites seniors in honoring the opportunities we’ve been given while at American University, and unites us with past senior classes in building a legacy that will benefit those who follow us.
We are pleased that the Class of 2016 has decided to let you choose your legacy by giving to the area of campus that means most to you. Choose from a variety of funds on campus, ranging from your favorite student group where new friends were made, to the school or college where you explored new interests and discovered your passions.
What aspect of the AU community was most meaningful to you?
200+ student organizations
100+ AU Abroad programs
7 AU schools/colleges
16 athletic teams
Why should you support our senior class gift?
Give because any gift, regardless of size, counts as alumni participation and elevates AU's rankings in publications like US News and World Report, raising the values of our degrees.
Give because more than 4 out of every 5 incoming AU students receive some sort of financial aid.
Give because you finally found your niche when you joined your student org.
Give because AU taught you that you can have a positive effect on the world.
Give because you want to show your pride for the Class of 2015.
We will not share the campus with the incoming class of 2020, but we want them to have access to the same variety of AU experiences as we did. Remember – a gift of ANY size helps! There’s no limit to how many times you can give, so if you want to give in increments, that’s fine too. It all adds up!
Your gift will count toward our class goal of raising more than $10,000.
