Annual Fund FAQ


How can I make an annual gift to Alabama A&M University?
There are two ways to make continuous annual gifts to AAMU Annual Fund. Gifts may be designated for a particular college or area through the Annual Fund or they may be channeled to areas of greatest need by earmarking annual gifts simply for the AAMU Annual Fund. You may make an annual gift at anytime for the designation(s) of your choice.

Is there a minimum donation?
As an alumnus or friend of AAMU, you may contribute any amount through the annual giving program.

Will my gift make a difference?
Absolutely! Every dollar given on an annual basis to Alabama A&M has an impact and is very much appreciated by the students, faculty and programs of the university.

What if I can’t afford to make a large gift this year? Does my support still make a difference?
A tax-deductible gift of any amount through the annual giving program sends a message that you support the university and its mission. Annual giving program support also directly impacts Alabama A&M’s standing in U.S. News and World Report’s “America’s Best Colleges” rankings. Among major criteria used by the publication to determine a university’s score is alumni satisfaction, which is measured by the percentage of alumni contributing consistently on an annual basis. The greater the participation rate for alumni and friends in the annual giving program, the higher the ranking will be for Alabama A&M.

Can I make a monthly credit or debit card gift to AAMU?
Yes. We want to make giving to Alabama A&M as convenient as possible for you and will be happy to set up a recurring, monthly gift online at a level you are comfortable with.

How often should I make a gift?
You may make as many gifts per year as you like. Annual contribution recognition levels are based on your fiscal year giving from October 1 of the current year to September 30 of the following year. Each person who donates will be recognized in the President’s Annual Report for the fiscal year they contribute in.
