Every time you attend a club event, buy a raffle ticket, or donate directly to The Emerald Coast Auburn Club, you help grow the Auburn Family. The Emerald Coast Auburn Club awards one Out of State Waiver Scholarship each year thanks to the generosity of our members. This scholarship is awarded by Auburn University on a variety of criteria and make a great impact on incoming out of state students. The ECAC has no role in deciding the recipient of the scholarship.
Three Ways to Contribute Financially:
- The Bill and Gayle Creamer Memorial Scholarship is supported by the Emerald Coast Auburn Club at the endowed level. (An endowment is a gift help in perpetuity and invested to provide a stable funding source for scholarships and other campus initiatives. Gifts are placed in a fund and a portion of the income earned from that fund finances a scholarship for deserving students, now and in the future.) Your gift is tax deductible and counts towards membership in one of Auburn’s donor societies.
- Attending the Emerald Coast Auburn Club’s Spring Dinner. Each spring we host a sponsored dinner with a notable Auburn keynote speaker. Past years events have included guest speakers such as Football Head Coach Gus Malzahn, Athletic Director Al Greene, Associate Football Head Coach Rodney Garner and Basketball Head Coach Bruce Pearl to name a few.
- Playing in the annual Emerald Coast Classic Golf Tournament. All proceeds from this tournament directly benefit the Bill and Gayle Creamer Memorial Scholarship fund.
