Forward Together at Aurora University

After an unprecedented year, we are all looking forward to a brighter future. However, we should not forget to smile back on the past with fondness, and more importantly, gratitude. Aurora University was built on the generous spirit of parents, friends, and a strong community of alumni. Without the support of many before us, AU would not be the remarkable institution it is today.

Now more than ever, our legacy is sustained through annual giving. The AU A-Fund, now Forward Together, is an investment in Aurora University and its extraordinary students. From scholarships to new learning facilities, this fund enriches all areas of the Spartan experience. Every day, our students benefit from the support that annual gifts provide.

As an alumnus, your investment — big or small — ensures that these hardworking individuals have the opportunities and resources needed to earn their degrees. Whether you can give $5 or $2,500, your gift positively impacts the story of AU. By honoring your past, you can inspire their future. And together, we can truly make a difference.

We encourage you to join us as we move “forward together” in 2021 and beyond. You may make your gift online here. For more information, contact Meg Howes, vice president for development, at 630-844-5256 or
