Planned Giving at AUB
  • Help us secure the future of AUB

    ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​When you make a planned gift to AUB, you are investing in the university, in Lebanon, and in the region. You are helping to ensure, in the words of our Mission Statement, that AUB will be able to continue “to provide excellence in education, to participate in the advancement of knowledge through research, and to serve the peoples of the Middle East and beyond" for generations to come.

    AUB is a global university. The members of the AUB family are global citizens—often citizens of one country, who live in another country, and own property in a third. We recognize that there are laws, family considerations, and religious differences that influence how our alumni and friends approach planned giving. AUB staff in Beirut and North America are equally diverse and are also aware of and respect these differences. 

    We can assist you in identifying the right planned gift to meet your interests, wherever you reside. Some of the information on this website is relevant only for US or Canadian citizens. We have the expertise and the experience, however, to work with a wide range of bequests from our worldwide family of donors. If you have questions, please contact us. We would be happy to speak with you and answer any questions you may have. 

    We have recently established the AUB Clock Tower Society to recognize and thank donors who have instituted a planned gift or included AUB in their estate plans. We have chosen this name because the clock tower itself is an iconic image and the pinnacle of College Hall, the first building on the AUB campus. College Hall was completed in 1873. The bell in the College Hall clock tower rang for the first time in March 1874. Throughout AUB history, this building has been identified more than any other with the university’s resilience and its abiding commitment to, in the words of our founder Daniel Bliss, “develop in its students the love of truth and the desire to do right.”

    AUB has received many planned gifts and bequests over the years—dating back to 1870. Some of our more recent donors also have moving stories​ to tell.
