     Ways to Make a Gift    

Whether through scholarships, facilities and equipment, annual gifts or beyond, your gifts can impact our work here every single day.

Give Online

Make a gift of any size using Visa, MasterCard, American Express, or DISCOVER cards. You can honor or remember someone with your gift.

Send a Check

Checks payable to Auburn University Foundation should be mailed to:

  • College of Engineering
  • Attn: Office of Development
  • 1320 Shelby Center
  • Auburn, AL 36849
  • Please note your preferred area of support on the memo line.

Endowments provide permanent, self-sustaining sources of funding for the university. You can create an endowment in your name or in the name of someone of your choosing. Endowments are created with a minimum philanthropic investment of $25,000 – either as an outright gift paid over time or through a bequest from your estate.

Gifts in Kind

Both tangible and intangible personal property can be gifted to Auburn University.

Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT)

EFTs, or monthly bank drafts, are a convenient way to establish regular support for Auburn.


Receive tax benefits that include income-tax deductions and avoiding long-term capital gains.

Matching Gifts

Your employer may double or even triple your gift to Auburn University. Your employer’s Human Resources department can provide details and a matching gift form.

Real Estate Gifts

Gifts of donated property – primary and vacation homes, undeveloped land, commercial property, farms, and timberland – can be immediate or planned gifts.

Estate Planning

Provide support for Auburn in your estate. Our planned giving team is available to discuss your options – including opportunities to receive income or other financial benefits during your lifetime.

Corporate and Foundation Giving

Philanthropic partnerships with Auburn University foster positive business, academic, and community relationships for corporations and foundations.
