This Is Auburn Auburn University Libraries Ways to Give

Ways to Give

Thank you for considering a gift to the Auburn Libraries! You may designate your gift or pledge to your area of interest or to the Library’s area of greatest need.


Quickly and easily make a gift of any size online using Visa®, MasterCard®, American Express™, or DISCOVER® cards.


If you prefer to process your gift by telephone, please contact Margherita Ligorio at 334 740 1856 or by email at to talk about making a gift or to ask any questions you might have.


A check is a common way to provide a gift to The Auburn Libraries. Please make your check payable to “Auburn University Foundation.” Also, please note your preferred designation on the memo line of your check, and if possible, complete and return our gift card with your donation.

Checks should be mailed to Auburn University Foundation and mailed to Auburn Libraries at 317 S. College St., Auburn, AL 36849.


EFTs, or monthly bank drafts, are a convenient way to support the Auburn Libraries. Specify your gift amount and designation according to your wishes. To request the form necessary to begin an EFT or make an inquiry, please contact Margherita Ligorio at 334 740 1856 or by email at


By donating common stocks, bonds, mutual funds, and other appreciated securities, donors may also receive tax benefits that include avoiding long-term capital gains tax and obtaining deductions for their annual income tax filing. In most cases, donors can maximize their contribution through gifts of stock by transferring these appreciated securities to the Auburn University Foundation directly, rather than liquidating them first and donating the proceeds of that sale to the foundation.


Your employer may double or even triple your gift to Auburn University. Your employer’s Human Resources department can provide details and a matching gift form.

If you are interested in making a planned gift, please contact Margherita Ligorio at 334 740 1856 or by email at
