IMPORTANT ADVISORY: For International Donors and Friends:
(i.e. persons who are making an online gift from outside the USA or Canada):

Following these steps will help to ensure that your gift is processed smoothly and successfully.

  • Your online gift to Africa University will be viewed as an international transaction by your bank. Before making your gift, please check with your bank  to ensure that your credit card is cleared for international transactions. 
  • Be sure to select your country (i.e. the country in which your credit card was issued), from the drop down menu.
  • As you fill in your address, you will see fields that request that you enter your "State" and "ZIP code". These are required fields. They must be completed for the credit card transaction to be processed.
  • Please click on the arrow beside the "State" field and select "N/A" from the drop down menu. It will be the very first option on the list.
  • In the "ZIP code" field, please enter "00000".
  • Once you are done with the billing information, please complete the payment information and submit your gift.
  • If you experience difficulties and your gift is declined or you get an error message after following these steps, please send us an email at and we will be in touch to assist you.
  • Please do not make multiple attempts, as multiple unsuccessful attempts to give may cause your credit card to be blocked in our system. 

Thank you for your support.
