All gifts count! Donors may choose to make an unrestricted gift to the AU Fund for Excellence, or designate to any school, college, department, program, or project.
Gifts to the AU Fund for Excellence, Deans' funds, Library, Athletics, and Campus Life funds provide budget-relieving support, allowing AU to meet its greatest needs. Donors may make designated gifts at any level to a specific purpose or project.
Please contact the Office of Development and Alumni Relations at firstname.lastname@example.org or 202-885-5900 if you are interested in a naming opportunity. Thank you.
