Ways to Give
Give a Gift to Auburn Montgomery
We know convenience is important for our generous donors. Perhaps you prefer the ease of online giving or writing a check, but maybe chatting about your gift directly with an Office of Advancement staff person is more appealing. No matter what, we're here to make the process easy for you. Be Inspired. Click Here to view the Campaign Brochure.
Write a Check
Those wishing to make a gift in the form of a check can make it payable to the Auburn University Foundation. Checks can be mailed to the following address:
Auburn University at Montgomery
Office of Advancement
P. O. Box 244023
Montgomery, AL 36177-9681
Be sure to note the purpose, or designation, of your gift on the memo line of your check or include a brief note. Without designation, your gift will be directed to the area of greatest need. (For example, AUM Scholarship Fund).
Donating online to Auburn Montgomery is quick and easy using our secure site. There are numerous giving options available; you can donate to a specific program, or allow the university to direct your gift to the area of greatest need.

You may charge your gift to your Credit Card by calling 334-244-3560.
Electronic Funds Transfer
Through EFT, you can spread the cost of your annual support of Auburn Montgomery over the course of a year by authorizing your bank to transfer a predetermined monthly amount (minimum $10 monthly) to the AUM program of your choice. Please contact the Office of Advancement for more information at 334-244-3560.
Gifts of Stock
Your wise market investment is a great gift to Auburn Montgomery! By donating the financial instrument, you avoid long-term capital gains tax and deduct the full market value on your tax return. It is almost always to your advantage to transfer appreciated securities to the Foundation directly, rather than selling them and giving cash.
Please contact the Office of Advancement at 334-244-3560 to learn how to make this transfer.
Many corporations participate in matching the gifts of their employees. Some double or triple each dollar contributed. Your company's Human Resource Department can provide details and the matching gift form to include with your check. To discover if your employer matches gifts, go to www.matchinggifts.com/auburn.
Gifts of Property (Gifts-in-Kind)
Works of art, rare books, antique furnishing and other tangible personal property can help support education and greatly enhance the quality of the Auburn Montgomery experience. Such gifts must be appraised by an outside expert (if value is over $5,000) or have a documental receipt value. Please contact the Office of Advancement at 334-244-3560 to discuss a possible Gift-in-Kind.
Gift of Real Estate
Many donors contribute real estate such as a residence, vacation home, farm, ranch, commercial property or land to the Foundation. These gifts receive the same tax treatment as gifts of securities — no capital gains tax plus deductibility at fair-market value. Please contact us with questions at 334-244-3560.
The Personal Touch
