Making a Gift

The School of Public Affairs' tradition of academic excellence has been made possible through the generous support of alumni and friends. Your generosity contributes the funds necessary to bridge the gap between tuition revenues and the true cost of educating SPA's undergraduate and graduate students.

SPA benefits greatly from annual unrestricted gifts, as well as contributions targeted toward a particular interest, such as the SPA Dean's Fund or a favorite department or program.

Planned Gifts
Often the best way to support SPA is through a gift of appreciated stock or an estate gift such as a codicil to your existing will or an annuity gift. Different philanthropic goals and tax benefits may be realized by each of these gift types. Remembering SPA in your will entitles you to membership in American University's Helen Kettler Palmer Society. We appreciate your support through your giving to SPA.
