XF 1.5 Account upgrade question.

Hypothetically, let's say I have a friend and I want to give him a paid account upgrade for free. I realize I can just add him to the user group with those permissions, but let's say I only want to give it to him for a certain time period, like a first month free or a year in return for a favor or as a gift or something.

Is there a way I can upgrade his account from my end without going through the paypal thing, AND still have it automatically expire after a certain time period?

The reason I ask is, I'm going to start a crowdfunding campaign for my forum, and I want to give donors a free account upgrade, with different time lengths for different contributions. So for example, give someone a year upgrade for a donation of 25, or a five year upgrade for a donation of 100.

Yes.

Admin Control Panel -> Users -> List Active Upgrades

From there you can manually add or remove a member to any upgrade.
Doesn't look like I have that option. I haven't installed the update that just came out today, so if it's brand new then that would be why. I'm using 1.5 that was up to date until just today.

Here's what that screen looks like for me:

I found it!

ACP-Users-List User Upgrades

Then go to controls, and I'm assuming hit manually upgrade user:
