You're Invited! Join the AU Legacy Challenge

Learn More About This Topic

In celebration of all that American University has meant to you and all that it promises to be, you are invited to join in a special opportunity to help shape AU's future.

The AU Legacy Challenge has been established to enable supporters who include the university in their charitable estate plans to also have an immediate impact at AU.

How the AU Legacy Challenge Works:

  1. Create a legacy gift to American University in your will or trust; name AU as a beneficiary of your retirement plan, bank account, or life insurance policy; or make another provision for the university in your charitable estate plan.
  2. Document your new philanthropic commitment to AU by completing the Legacy Challenge Gift Confirmation Form.
  3. The AU Legacy Challenge Fund will donate 10 percent of your gift's current value—up to $10,000—to your area of interest at AU.

Our planned giving staff will be happy to partner with you to ensure your planned gift qualifies for the AU Legacy Challenge so you can make an immediate impact today.
