AUC is a 501(c) (3) American tax-exempt nonprofit organization. IRS ID number: 13-5647700

You may choose to make an outright gift or pledge at any time. Pledges enable a donor to plan a personal giving program that is both convenient and tax-wise. A pledge may enable some donors to consider a more significant gift than would have been otherwise possible. Should you have any questions regarding the ways to give, contact the Office of Advancement Services by email.

  • Secure payments may be made online in US Dollars or Egyptian Pound.
