What is Your Senior Class Gift?

Last updated on January 5, 2021

What is the Senior Class Gift Campaign?

Graduating seniors (undergraduates and graduates) are encouraged to make a gift to the University. It's the first step to becoming an involved alum and a way for your class to leave a legacy. All seniors are encouraged to give EGP 20.21 or more in honor of their graduation year.

Why should I give?

A gift to AUC makes a difference in the lives of all current and future AUCians! By giving, it is like a vote of confidence in AUC as a leading educational institution, and an act of gratitude for all that they have learned and experienced all throughout your journey. 

Where does my gift go?

Your gift is directed to the most fund in need of continuous support, the AUC Annual Fund; it supports scholarships and financial aid to underprivileged students. The utmost philanthropic action you can do before graduation is supporting the education of another AUCian. Paying forward feels awesome!

Why does my gift matter?

Student and alumni participation in annual giving is a valuable measure and role in the University rankings.
You have the power to change AUC's ranking and push it upwards together as a graduating class.

How much should I give?

We recommend a gift of EGP 20.21 to honor your graduation year, however, whether it’s EGP 5 or EGP 500, every gift counts! 

Can a club or an organization donate to the senior class gift?

The more the merrier! All donations will count towards the senior class gift under their name, and for EGP 5k, they can buy a brick named after their club on the Watson wall.

What’s in it for me?

You will receive the unique blue senior class sash to attend your commencement ceremony. Moreover, the president will ask those who participated in the senior class gift to stand up to acknowledge and commend their philanthropic act.

All those who participated in the senior class gift will enter a raffle prize for a chance to win: 

  • An AUC silver class ring
  • A diploma frame
  • A free commencement ticket
  • A free membership to the sports facility for one semester
  • A photo session on the commencement day for you and your family
