The Quai d’Orsay Society was founded in 2021 to recognize and celebrate the generous alumni, trustees, parents and friends who have made a commitment to The American University of Paris through a planned gift. The Quai d’Orsay Society offers AUP’s devoted constituents the opportunity to connect deeply with the University and leave a lasting impact on an institution they care about. 

By making a planned gift commitment to the University, society members have ensured that AUP’s global liberal arts education will remain available and accessible for generations to come.  

AUP welcomes new members into the Quai d’Orsay Society who share their intention to make a planned gift – whether from a will, from a retirement account, or via another form of legacy gift. Gifts of all sizes help AUP provide an excellent and unique educational experience to the global explorers who call the University home.  

If you have already made a gift intention to AUP, please contact us and let us know, so we may invite you into Quai d’Orsay Society.
