Let us begin by saying: ALL GIFTS COUNT! Large or small, your gift to AUIB matters. You may make an UNRESTRICTED gift to the AUIB Fund for Excellence or make a DESIGNATED gift to a specific program, school, college, department, scholarship fund, or project.
Annual gifts to the University allow us to build truly outstanding programs in business, education, arts and sciences, engineering, health sciences, and international affairs. Our goal is to change the lives of students in the region and to give them the opportunity to become productive, global citizens. Your gift in cash, stock, or property allows us to create the type of programs that create a positive impact on our community, our nation, the region and the world.
By joining one of our donor societies, you provide AUIB with funding that directly impacts our students and faculty. Your gift allows us to hire outstanding instructors and research scholars and to build excellent programs and student services.
Members of Donor Recognition Societies are invited to a yearly gala and given free and open access to campus programs, special events, the library, and more.

There are a wide variety of opportunities to name scholarships, programs, buildings, spaces and even faculty positions. Naming gifts range from $10,000 to well over $10 million. You may also want to establish an endowed fund that will honor a donor in perpetuity. We would welcome the opportunity of discussing your vision with you.
Here are a few ideas for you to consider:
Names an entire building after the donor (i.e. The “X” School of Engineering or The “X” Memorial Library)
Names a specific facility and/or campus space (i.e. The “X” Stadium or The “X” Auditorium)
Names and endows in perpetuity faculty chair/dean positions in any school or college (i.e. The “X” Dean of Health Sciences or The “X” Chair of Petroleum Engineering)
Names and endows in perpetuity distinguished professorships (i.e. The “X” Professor of International Affairs or The “X” Professor of Nursing)
