there is tremendous power in every gift — and within everyone who supports auburn.

The Auburn Fund gives Auburn’s alumni and friends an easy way to participate in large-scale, noteworthy projects across campus that one person often cannot accomplish alone. Your gift — whether $25 or $2,500 —  matters to us. By combining support we receive from throughout the Auburn Family, we can guarantee an exciting future for Auburn University.

Did you know that alumni participation is one of the measures used in our annual ranking in U.S. News and World Report? Participation is also viewed by outside corporations and foundations as a measure of the quality of education provided — and the willingness of our alumni to invest in the next generation of Auburn graduates.

Your gifts through our online giving, phonathon, and mail-based programs fund scholarships for our students, allow Auburn to recruit and retain best-in-their-field faculty, enhance our academic, research, and outreach programs, and modernize labs and classrooms with state-of-the-art equipment.

Auburn Fund Programs


In 2014, 10.2 percent of Auburn’s alumni made a charitable gift — almost two points higher than the national average! Every gift, any amount, every year matters. Because alumni participation rates factor into Auburn’s U.S. News and World Report ranking, your gift further helps attract the very best students and faculty. We hope you’ll support an area of campus that is meaningful to you.


Currently, 60 student phonathon callers spend their evenings contacting donors on behalf of Auburn. These students believe in Auburn and care deeply about its future. During these calls, you’ll have the opportunity to make a gift to your college or school, or any other area of campus that’s meaningful to you. We hope you’ll take the time to answer these calls and get to know our wonderful student callers.


During the year, the Auburn Fund sends mailings on behalf of our programs benefiting our students or campus leaders seeking support for their colleges, schools, and other units. We hope their messages will inspire and encourage you to give to an area about which you care. If you’re not receiving these mailings, we are happy to assist you in updating your information. Please contact the Auburn Fund by email at or by calling (334) 844-1142.


Each year, Auburn’s faculty and staff join together in support of Auburn. In this way, our employees do more than share their time, talents, and knowledge with Auburn and its students. By investing philanthropically in Auburn, our employees are leaving a legacy through both their work and their giving. We hope you will join them!
