    Please call the FAU Foundation at 561-297-2891 to make a gift using your credit or debit card.

  • Electronic Funds Transfer

    EFT allows you to regularly give to FAU by authorizing FAU to debit your checking or savings account in an amount you designate. You can cancel your gift at any time by completing the Discontinue Electronic Funds Transfer Form. If you are interested in a continuous gift through EFT, please complete the Electronic Funds Transfer Authorization Form and mail to: FAU Foundation, Inc., 777 Glades Road, ADM 295, Boca Raton, FL, 33431.

  • Planned Gifts

    Planned gifts are sometimes referred to as "stop-and-think" gifts because they require some planning and often, help from your professional advisors. Unlike cash donations, they are typically made from assets in your estate rather than disposable income, and come to fruition upon your death.

    Contact David Rutherford at 561-297-2119 or gift.planning@fau.edu to learn how you can support our mission while ensuring your family's financial security.

  • Stocks and Securities

    Stocks and securities are often among the most valuable assets you own—and they can carry substantial capital gain, or appreciation in value. With careful planning, you can reduce or even eliminate federal capital gains tax while supporting FAU.

  • Recurring Gift

    Gifts do not have to be made in a lump sum. You can opt to make a gift in installments. You can make payments on the gift either weekly, monthly, quarterly or annually.

    You can make a recurring gift by check, money order, credit card or debit card.
