Every Gift Matters
You can be a part of our continued growth by making a gift to the area on campus for which you are most passionate. Whether you give to your college, department, favorite program or center, you can be assured your gift matters and will help build a better AUM.
Make your gift
We offer a variety of convenient giving options. You may designate your gift or pledge to your area of interest or to the university’s area of greatest need.
Ways to Give
Annual Fund gifts are a powerful source of current-use to the University’s area of greatest need that provides our students immediate support needed for their success.
Quick and secure way to make a gift of any size using Visa ®, MasterCard®, American Express® or Discover® cards.
Send a Check
Those wishing to make a gift in the form of a check can make it payable to the Auburn University Foundation. Please note your preferred designation on the memo line of your check.
Electronic Funds Transfers (EFT)
Through EFT, you can spread the cost of your annual support of AUM over the course of a year by authorizing your bank to transfer a predetermined monthly amount (minimum of $10) to the AUM program of your choice.
Your employer may double or even triple your gift to Auburn University at Montgomery. Your employer’s Human Resources 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 Stock
Gifts of appreciated assets are a great way to give to Auburn University at Montgomery! By gifting stock, you avoid long-term capital gains tax and can 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.
Gifts of Property
Works of art, rare books, antique furnishing and other tangible personal property can help support education and greatly enhance the quality of the AUM experience. Such gifts must be appraised by an outside expert (if value is over $5,000) or have a documented receipt value.
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.
