About Campaign ASU 2020

Generosity Fuels a University of Exceptional Impact

Why Campaign ASU 2020 Matters

ASU has reimagined what higher education can be and redesigned the public research university to fulfill that vision. More people from our diverse population have access to an education that prepares them to thrive in the workplace. More communities are sharing the economic and societal benefits of purpose-based research.

Support to Campaign ASU 2020 ensures that ASU continues to produce life-long learners for an increasingly diverse, fast-paced workforce. Your gifts enable ASU to produce innovative research and contribute solutions to our most pressing challenges.

Your Support Matters

Giving to a great university is a direct way to create change with one act of generosity. The university is an amazing collection of research, discovery, service, and lives being changed, and a gift to ASU may indeed lead to diseases cured, lives bettered, new technologies created, communities served, environments and species preserved, and vital questions answered.

You + Campaign ASU 2020

Visionary supporters have allowed ASU to extend higher education to people from all income levels, so all have the chance to better themselves and their communities. Donors have helped create a learning environment that champions excellence and offers abundant learning opportunities, and whose research enterprise aims for the greatest societal impact.

Campaign ASU 2020 provides the fuel to accelerate ASU’s mission. Gifts to Campaign ASU 2020 enable us to provide nimble, relevant education; develop new knowledge, better ideas, and workable solutions; transform individuals and communities; and scale our ideas to a global audience.

Collectively, the ASU community, its supporters, and champions of higher education will raise at least $1.5 billion to sustain ASU’s momentum and shape our shared future.

Areas of Priority

Ensure Student Access & Excellence

Through Campaign ASU 2020, you can provide the need-based and merit-based aid that is critical to enrolling students with a wide range of talents, backgrounds, life experiences, and abilities. Federal funding for the neediest undergraduate students has not kept up with the increasing price of college, placing a disproportionate burden of debt on those with the fewest resources.

Champion Student Success

Your support through Campaign ASU 2020 will help us strengthen programs that enrich the student experience, expand future offerings, and ensure that all students—not just the wealthiest—can take advantage of them. These programs often involve added costs, such as living expenses, program fees, and travel. Your generosity will remove cost as a barrier for students who believe they cannot afford to study abroad, for example, or to give up employment to make time for research or an internship.

Elevate the Academic Enterprise

Your support for faculty through Campaign ASU 2020 will ensure that we can bring the most talented professors here and empower them to pursue their ideas for teaching and research without any limitations. This is the best way to advance excellence at ASU.

Fuel Discovery, Creativity, & Innovation

Pursuing research at the highest possible level is costly—but essential. Your support for research through Campaign ASU 2020 will ensure that faculty and students in every college and school can access the latest resources and technology, attend conferences, travel, share their work, and translate their findings into new knowledge.

Enrich Our Communities

We rely on gifts of all sizes to make community programs a reality. Through Campaign ASU 2020, you can support a range of efforts that are advancing society in ways you care about—or you can help ASU launch a new idea or initiative. As a New American University, ASU demonstrates what is possible when a public research university commits to serving the public good.

Drive Sun Devil Competitiveness

ASU is poised to establish Sun Devil Athletics as one of the most competitive programs in the Pac-12 Conference and nationally. You can help us take our already strong program to an even-higher level: your financial support and generosity will furnish the best facilities and resources our student-athletes need to achieve on the field and in the classroom.
