guide to giving

Invest in Arizona State University in a way that suits your philanthropic goals and financial circumstances.

You may invest in the work of ASU through outright gifts, which can be put to work immediately, or with planned or deferred gifts, which mature to benefit the university at a later date. You may be able to multiply your impact through employer gift matching programs. An endowment is one of the most powerful ways you can support ASU. Annual income generated by an endowment provides a continuous, reliable resource stream for the future.
