On Founders Day 2017: “Get Clawed to the Ball”

By  | 

Get Clawed to the Ball, February 23-24

February 23-24 is our annual Founders Day giving event in celebration of AU. "Get Clawed to the Ball!" is a fun, online challenge for our community of supporters. This event demonstrates the power we have when we come together. In 2016, a record number of AU community members gave over $104,000 for one purpose – to support AU.

We will build on last year's success and aim to break a record with more than 500 donors in 36 hours.

Gifts show AU students and faculty that you believe in the important work they are doing. The best part is you decide where to give. Which school, program, initiative, or part of campus do you want to influence the most? 

We can't wait to see what the AU community will do this year.

So how can you get involved?

  • Visit the giving day website to sign up for a reminder and to get more information.
  • Become a social media ambassador and Facebook Challenger.
  • Share posts on social media about what school, program, or initiative you are supporting with the hashtag #getclawedtotheball.
  • On February 23 and 24, be sure to check the website periodically to see Clawed's progress!
  • Make a gift!

With your help, we can shape the future of AU and support current and future AU students. Together we can get Clawed to the Ball!
