Women & Philanthropy members were given a challenge, and they rose to meet it.
Members were asked to give $100,000 — over and above their annual contribution — to establish the Women & Philanthropy New American University Scholarship Endowment. By the end of the year, they had contributed $102,500.
Our Women & Philanthropy New American University Scholarship is eligible for an immediate 4 percent match from ASU for the next 10 years. That means, in addition to the annual income produced by the endowment investment, the university will match approximately $4,000.
The result is that Women & Philanthropy members, through annual scholarships, will help talented and deserving students with financial need pursue their academic dreams. We are letting students know that if they can dream it, they can do it at ASU. We also will be advancing ASU’s commitment to the fundamental principle of accessibility to all qualified students.
The Women & Philanthropy New American University Scholarship is one more way that our legacy will endure at ASU.
