We, the Alumni of the American University in Bulgaria:
- Cherish the unique benefits and experience of our time at AUBG and feel a strong bond to what many of us recognize as the “The Spirit of AUBG”
- Respect and wish to continue the work of those who acted with vision, passion and generosity to establish our special institution
- Support and believe in the mission and values of AUBG exemplified and instilled in students and alumni.
All future alumni donations will count towards the Alumni Pledge. All donors will have the choice between restricted (endowment, scholarships, student clubs, research, events, etc.) and unrestricted options. Whatever is closest to your heart.
Where can I contribute?
You can direct your contribution to any of the causes listed in the AUBG Donation form, such as AUBG Scholarships, Student Clubs, Naming Opportunities, Panitza Library, Current Projects and Initiatives and others. There is a detailed description for every cause.
How can I contribute?
You can donate via the AUBG website directly to the university, as well as through bank transfer or other options. In case you need any assistance, please contact the Development Office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Most of us owe our success in our chosen sphere of work due to what we have learned at AUBG. The success of AUBG improves the brand for alumni in the eyes of all stakeholders. It is in alumni's best interest to support in every possible way the academic success and economic prosperity of AUBG. AUBG is the best school in the country. My vision for AUBG is to become the best school in the region and to be known as “Stanford on the Balkans."
I am very grateful to all our wonderful alumni donors to the first year of the Alumni Pledge initiative. Even in these extremely complex and challenging times, your generosity exceeded our most optimistic hopes. Your contributions have helped AUBG manage the COVID-19 crisis, assist current students to continue their education, and demonstrate to our other friends and supporters that we are making progress towards the critical goal of broadening our financial base. I regret that the current circumstances prevent many of us from meeting in person for the time being, but I look forward to thanking you directly when next we can be together. I hope that this year we can continue to collaborate in whatever form is safest and best to carry on the great work of the Alumni Pledge and help AUBG thrive into the bright future.

In a region and a world, which has swung back towards autocratic forms of government, AUBG’s mission to educate outstanding subtends and prepare them for democratic and ethical leadership is as relevant as the day the university was founded. As alumni, we must invest in the continued effort of our region to transform itself by supporting the people who can lead this transformation.

As a recipient of the Boston Alumni Scholarship, I am able to advance my academic knowledge and skills in the sphere of Business Administration and JMC, accumulate soft skills through the extracurricular activities and accede to a better educated and motivated young generation of Bulgaria.
The AUBG alumni community provides valuable experience and financial support to current AUBG students, which I admire and aim to be part of as a future AUBG alumna.

If we were able to receive the high-quality AUBG education and reap the benefits of this education later on in our careers, it was because this was made possible by the generous donations from donors. So while we have no formal obligation to donate to AUBG, we have the moral responsibility to help other smart and talented young people experience AUBG in the same way that someone else made it possible for us when we were students. If you value your AUBG education and believe that more people should have access to such education, please make a donation. Even a small amount will make a big difference for someone.
