The McGoldrick Lesson

Donate. Share. Win.

Join Challenge


When former Economics professor Michael E. McGoldrick passed away in 2021, he left AUBG a generous gift in his will – an unconditional donation of $375,000.

But his generosity went even further. He pledged an additional $650,000 to the university in a 1:1 matching donation challenge. Meaning, the McGoldrick estate will only double the named amount if we succeed in raising it in full among our own alumni and friends.

This is why on Nov. 21 we launched The McGoldrick Lesson – a three-week crowdfunding campaign aiming to honor the life of professor McGoldrick and commemorate the last lesson in unity he gave to the AUBG community!
