Family Campaign continues

The co-chairs of the 2018 AUM Family Campaign, Megan Hughes and Tim Lutz, want to encourage participation and thank those that have already participated!

Contributions to the AUM Family Campaign are a vital demonstration of your support for AUM as well as any part of the university that is especially important to you. The contribution can go to the General Fund or you can earmark the money for a certain department, such as the Employee Assistance Fund – which helps AUM employees in times of need and emergencies, such as hospitalization, a death in the family, a house fire, etc. – the library, Theatre AUM, student scholarships, the Honors Program, and many more.

You may also designate a gift in memory of a departed friend or loved one as well as designate a contribution in honor of a special friend or colleague, such as a retiring colleague.

Please give what you can. All contributions — large and small — are welcome and appreciated. Keep in mind, contributions to the AUM Family Campaign are also tax deductible.

You can give securely online today! Thank you for your help!
