Generosity in action

Philanthropy fuels the great work being done at ASU.

ASU Foundation


Campaign ASU 2020, a once-in-a-decade fundraising campaign, was meant to unite Arizona State University supporters around the idea that, together, we can improve lives and influence society for the better. And you exceeded all expectations.

You joined more than 353,650 ASU supporters who gave during the campaign, and helped raise $2.3 billion for ASU students, educational initiatives and community partnerships. Because of you, ASU is living up to the promises of its charter.

Here are a few examples of campaign generosity in action:

Coming out of Arizona’s foster care system, Breanna knew most former foster youth who attempt college don’t succeed. With scholarship support, she graduated in 2018 into a full-time job. Donors like you raised $292.6 million for scholarship and educational support resulting in a 22% growth in ASU scholarship recipients.
Alex is an undergraduate in mechanical engineering who was able to work on a one- of-a-kind scientific instrument being developed at ASU, a compact X-ray free electron laser that will allow researchers to peer into atomic structures. Donors like you raised $287.7 million for student-success initiatives that enrich the academic experience.
Women incarcerated at the Maricopa County Estrella Jail learn creative writing, expressive movement and storytelling so they can feel empowered to create a different life for themselves. The program would not exist without donors like you.

We can’t wait to see what we will accomplish together moving forward. Thanks to you, ASU’s future is full of promise.
