Support from alumni, friends of the university, and others is critical for Antioch University Seattle to fulfill its mission. Your tax-deductible gift can help Antioch University Seattle give scholarships to new students, expand academic programs, and provide educational opportunities to as many people as possible.
New Campus Initiative
Gifts made to the New Campus Initiative will fund everything from artwork, to water efficiency systems, to learning technology — going directly to support students in our new building. This is a special, hands-on opportunity to participate in the building of our new campus home!
Our students are on the right path to transform their lives, but the cost of this journey can be difficult or out of reach. AUS is pleased to offer scholarships to students who have financial need. We are deeply grateful for the support of alumni, faculty, staff and friends of Antioch Seattle.

Memorial and Tribute Gifts
Recognize someone special. Support AUS.
Tribute gifts are a thoughtful way to celebrate a birthday, wedding, new baby, graduation, or any special occasion. They also serve as a special expression of sympathy by honoring the memory of a friend or relative. Tributes or memorial gifts can honor someone you admire, respect, or want to remember in a meaningful way, such as an alumnus or alumna, a professor, an adviser, a mentor, a co-worker, a family member, or a friend who has made a special impact in your life.
Some examples of how members of the Antioch University Seattle family have made thoughtful tribute gifts:
- Instead of receiving wedding gifts, a recently married board member and his new wife asked that friends make a contribution to support scholarship funds at AUS.
- Following the death of her son, the mother of one of our graduates made a contribution in honor of a faculty member who had made a lasting impression on her child during his time at AUS.
- To honor the recent retirement of a long-time employee, staff and faculty at AUS made gifts in honor of their retiring coworker.
Tribute gifts are a wonderful way to honor someone because it shows that you want to support an organization that means a lot to them. Your tribute gift to AUS will be acknowledged with a card, letting the recipient (or their family) know that a donation has been made in their honor or memory. The amount of the gift is kept confidential and the tax deduction is yours.
