AYF Alumni Emergency Fund

Dear JYF and AYF Alumni, dear Friends of the Academic Year in Freiburg,

Virtually all AYF 2019-20 students are facing up to five months of additional rent payments for their student housing in Freiburg, hastily arranged high-cost local transportation, expensive, last-minute flight purchases,  and quite possibly additional tuition expenses as their path to graduation has become more uncertain.

Are you willing to support our fellow AYFers by giving to the AYF Alumni Emergency Fund?

Please give what you can ($5, $50, $500, or $5,000) to support our fellow AYFers now. Your financial support is critical in order to relieve this unprecedented financial stress on AYF 2019-20 students caused by the suspension of the AYF program.

Transfer of funds directly to our Volksbank Freiburg account is preferred since there are no transaction fees involved and your contributions will support the alumni club’s mission without loss. However, this is most suitable from within Europe or by using other low-cost options such as TransferWise or a similar service. Please indicate the purpose of the payment as Emergency Fundraiser 2020.

Reunion 2020 ~ Registration Fee & T-Shirt Fundraiser

The Academic Year in Freiburg and the AYF Alumni & Friends e.V. (the German chapter of the AYF alumni club) are hosting a reunion from July 9-13, 2020 concurrently with the 900 year anniversary of the City of Freiburg. We are very much looking forward to having you join us for a memorable series of events!

Attendance at all Reunion 2020 events, including guided tours and the symphony concert, is free of charge. However, since capacities are limited in some venues, since reservations and locations may need to be adjusted based on alumni interest, a detailed pre-registration is required. If you have not done so yet, please indicate your interest in attending the Reunion 2020 by going to the Interest Survey Page, and AYF will follow up with more details.

As part of registration for this celebratory reunion weekend, we are kindly requesting a registration fee of 20 € per adult to AYF Alumni & Friends, the German Chapter of the AYF Alumni Club.

We are also offering AYF Logo T-Shirts for pickup at the reunion weekend at 20 € per T-Shirt.

These funds help defray part of the organizational cost associated with the festivities. A possible surplus is earmarked for travel grants for current and future AYF students. By celebrating with us, you can ensure that their year with AYF will be as memorable as possible.

How to send Reunion Fees & Pay for T-Shirts

Transfer of funds directly to our Volksbank Freiburg account is preferred since there are no transaction fees involved and your contributions will support the alumni club’s mission without loss. However, this is most suitable from within Europe or by using other low-cost options such as TransferWise or a similar service. Please indicate the purpose of the payment (e.g. 2 x reunion fee plus 2 x t-shirts) so that we can match your transfer to the registration information processed through AYF.
