It is impossible for us to continue to make progress in teaching, research, and service without the continuing support of our faculty, alumni and friends. You are the lifeblood of our efforts. We appreciate this investment in our future and we recognize their contributions in several ways:
One of the ways we recognize our donors is through the naming of endowed funds established in support of college scholarships, faculty chairs, professorships, and other vital ares of need.
We also show appreciation to donors through the naming of buildings, laboratories, classrooms, and other facilities in honor of those who make substantial gifts designated for infrastructure programs and facilities.
The Centennial Club
This is Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine's most prestigious major donor recognition group.
One of the ways graduates of the college have elected to help us is through membership in the Centennial Club. This effort began in 1992 – during the centennial year of veterinary medicine at Auburn. Since that time, well over 230 graduates have pledged their support through the Centennial Club.
Funds provided by Centennial Club members enable the College to meet needs not otherwise covered by the state, such as refurbishing clinical and public facilities; purchasing equipment that directly relates to the teaching and clinical programs; and in general enhancing the environment in which our faculty and students perform.
Centennial Club membership is $1,000 per year for at least a five-year period. All contributions to the Centennial Club through the Auburn University Foundation are fully tax deductible, and every dime goes to the College of Veterinary Medicine.
Each year a special event is held for Centennial Club members during Annual Conference.
