Ways to Give

Thank you for considering a gift to Aurora University or George Williams College. There are many ways that you can make a difference for today's students and for the future of the institution.

Please contact us at 630-844-5482 or makeagift@aurora.edu if you have any questions about your gift. 

Give Online

Giving online is secure, easy and convenient. You can choose to support the A Fund or the area of the university that is most meaningful to you, and your gift goes to work immediately to help AU and GWC students. You also can choose to make your gift over automatic monthly, quarterly or yearly installments.

Make a Pledge 

Your gift pledge helps us to plan our operating expenses, scholarship offerings and program funding. Make your pledge online and we'll remind you when it's time to make your gift.

Matching Gifts

Matching gifts is an easy way to increase your support of the university without opening your wallet. Check with your or your spouse's employer's HR department to see if they will match charitable gifts. If they do, request the employer's matching gift form and mail it to us at the address above. We'll do the rest!


Gifts of Securities

Giving shares of appreciated stock, mutual funds, bonds, and other securities can offer significant tax benefits for the donor. Please consult your personal tax advisor for more information. For transfer instructions, contact Bruce Hill at 800-377-2782 or bhill@aurora.edu.

Planned Giving

A planned gift may enable you to make a more significant gift than you thought possible while at the same time allowing you to achieve your financial goals. Planned gifts help you take advantage of tax, financial and estate planning options. With assistance, you can tailor your gift to help meet the needs of current students while also providing yourself with tax benefits. Learn more about some of the options in planned giving

Centennial Projects

Help celebrate 100 years in the Fox Valley by investing in one of our Centennial Projects: The Aurora University Welcome Center, Centennial Gateway and Wackerlin Center for Faith and Action Addition.

Endowed Scholarships

You can leave a permanent legacy for AU and GWC students through an endowed scholarship. Income earned from the endowed fund provides financial assistance to future students in perpetuity, while the initial investment remains in tact in the endowment account.
