Athabasca University is pleased to present its 2016 Donor Report.

Thirty-three pages of gratitude

Inside you will find news about the support provided to the university over the past few years by more than 500 individuals, groups and corporations who believe in AU’s unique and important mission. The report also highlights some of the recent achievements that have resulted from that continuing support.

We greatly appreciate our donors’ generosity. Their support allowed us to bring the Open Our World Campaign to a successful conclusion on schedule in 2015 and to exceed our $30 million fundraising target by more than $2 million.

Take a look inside the Donor Report. We think you will be impressed by the generosity of our donors and volunteers and the accomplishments that have resulted from their contributions to AU.

Special thanks to our Board

We also wish to express our gratitude to the members of AU’s Board of Governors for their continuing volunteer work on behalf of AU. In addition to carrying out their important governance responsibilities, Board members have generously devoted their time and expertise in support of the Open Our World Campaign and other university initiatives.
