The Office of Development at the American University of Beirut serves as the liaison between the University and alumni/ae, friends and organizations.
We encourage and assist individuals and organizations interested in furthering the work of the University, and seek to enhance support through
outright gifts, pledges, gifts to endowments, gifts in kind, and other forms of financial contribution.
The Office of Development is in close touch with the University's alumni/ae, parents and friends around the world to build on our tradition of loyalty and
open communication and to ensure that the AUB family prospers.
