Giving Opportunities in the Cary Center

The Cary Center for the Advancement of Philanthropy and Nonprofit Studies in the Auburn University College of Human Sciences began with the organization of the Women's Philanthropy Board in Spring 2002. Historically, women have always been philanthropic in giving of their time and talents. Today, women are building on this traditional humanitarian role with a newly discovered capacity for independent financial giving as they acquire wealth, assume positions of leadership and combine their legacy of service to others. For a small pledge of $5,000 ($1,000 pledged annually for 5 years) you will secure your membership in this dynamic group.

Contact College of Human Sciences Development Officer, Kim McCurdy via email or phone at (334)844-9173 if you would like to learn more about any giving opportunities within the Cary Center.
