What is a recurring gift?
A recurring gift is a donation amount that an AUBG benefactor chooses to contribute to a certain cause over a specific period of time (duration) at a monthly or annual basis as opposed to one-time support. By making a periodic payment, the donor creates a dependable source of financial aid that the University can count on throughout the year. Once the benefactor has entered his/her payment information and submitted his/her recurring gifts specifications, AUBG will automatically deduct the gifts from his/her debit or credit card as per the instructions he/she has provided (amount, frequency and duration). Every online donation is completely secure and flexible.
