AUFA members are invited to support Alfred University by volunteering, serving as an Alfred Ambassador, and by making a gift to an area of the University that is important to you and your student.

Every gift to AU supports our students – energizing campus, supporting close student-faculty collaborations, promoting leadership development, providing study abroad opportunities, and preparing students for life after college.
