Ways to Give

AUC is grateful for gifts of every size. The support of our alumni, parents, and friends enables us to provide an outstanding academic experience for our talented students and has helped make us Egypt’s Global University. AUC is fully tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law in the United States, Canada, and Egypt. 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 at advancement@aucegypt.edu.

In order to make a gift or payment on a pledge, note the following options:
