Donor Relations & Stewardship

Our goal is to cultivate positive and enduring relationships with University and Health System donors by expressing sincere appreciation for their contributions and informing them about the impact and results of their giving. Our stewardship activities are intended to encourage new and lifelong generosity to Augusta University and AU Medical Center.

The Donor Bill of Rights

The Donor Bill of Rights ensures that philanthropy merits the respect and trust of the general public, and that donors and prospective donors can have full confidence in the nonprofit organizations and causes they are asked to support. The Office of Advancement serves as stewards to the funds entrusted to our Academic Health Center. As such, we must ensure the highest standards of donor confidentiality. Information on gifts to Augusta University is reserved for those working directly to support the donor’s gift intent within our Colleges and Units. For consideration of access, the following documents must be reviewed/affirmed.

Donor Events

Throughout the year, we host a variety of events to recognize the many ways our alumni, parents, and friends support the University.

Celebration of Scholarship

Each academic year, in the spring, we host a celebratory event for those benefactors who have supported endowed scholarships and those who have established new scholarships. This is a wonderful way to introduce our student-recipients to the people whose generosity has had such a meaningful impact.
