Paris is calling!  1,000 students and 150 faculty on campus are counting on your support to ensure AUP continues to thrive during this challenging period and beyond. 

Today we come to ask you to Make Paris Possible for the AUP community. Our goal is to secure 150 donors on November 19 a new record for AUP. When you make your gift - at what ever level and for whatever purpose - your gift will unlock an additional $100 in matching funds to support the urgent financial aid needs of AUP students.  

Your gift will directly support AUP students and the issues you care about. A donation of any size provides  students with more resources to create a better future for themselves and the communities they join. Give now to #MakeParisPossible 

Make Paris Possible and Support Students📓: Are you passionate about making sure students have access to an AUP education? Help AUP students thrive in Paris and make a gift to our need-based scholarship funds. Give to help us build our new Black Alumni @AUP scholarship or lend a helping hand via our Coup de Pouce fund for study trips. Your support, at any level, helps us attract the world’s most talented students to Paris. 

Make Paris Possible and Support Monttessuy Center for the Arts🎨Are you passionate about Art Education?  Help us raise the roof on The Monttessuy Center for the Arts. This campus project will see the renovation of our former library building to create a new center for the arts, including two fine arts studios, expanded and improved classrooms, student exhibition spaces and the University's first auditorium. This center will prepare tomorrow’s leaders in creative and performing arts as well as business and interdisciplinary fields. Donate now to help us begin construction in Spring 2021!

Make Paris Possible and Support La Vie Quotidienne at AUP  🍎Are you passionate about the daily health and safety of our students and campus?  Give to the unrestricted Annual Fund or Parents Fund to make an immediate difference in every program, classroom and organization on campus.  Unrestricted funds help us meet the most current and pressing everyday needs on campus and allow us to respond quickly as urgent needs arise. In Spring 2020, unrestricted funds enabled us to pivot to online learning due to Covid-19. This Fall, these funds have continued to provide support for students' day-to-day living expenses, additional cleaning in common spaces, and hand sanitizer and masks for our community.  These flexible dollars are critical for AUP's ability to respond quickly to unexpected urgent needs.  

Alumna Jordyn Baillie tells us why its so important to MAKE PARIS POSSIBLE!

Our incredible alumna Jordyn Baillie tells the AUP Community exactly why AUP needs your help this year.

Thank you!  We've reached our goal, setting a new record for the number of new gifts to AUP received in one day.  Thanks to the 150+ alumni, former students, parents and friends who have made this record possible.  Your generosity to AUP will have an immediate impact on our students and faculty every day on campus.

Let's keep going....there are still NINE HOURS left in Giving Day!  The Leadership Team of the University Challenges the Community to continue your support.  Each new gift will generate 100 euros for each of the next 25 gifts to #MakeParisPossible.

On behalf of the entire AUP community, thank you for your support.   You all MakeParisPossible.

Alumna Marvis Hardy-Nash gives to honor the year she spent at ACP, 1978

Black Alumni at AUP Founding Chair, Marvis Hardy-Nash, has made a generous gift of $1,978 to the Black Alumni at AUP Scholarship. This critical new scholarship has received some great support today, but it could use a bit more! 

Follow Marvis and donate to commemorate your AUP years. If you spent a year abroad or graduated in, say 2015 you could give $20.15, $201.50, $2015.00, etc.

EVERY gift helps to provide scholarship to students, and makes it possible for the brightest and most talented to attend AUP. Your support can #MakeParisPossible!

Visit the AUP Events page to register to attend the Inaugural Meeting of Black Alumni at AUP (BAAUP) this Saturday November 21st.
