Impact of Donor Support

  • Donors bring the world’s brightest minds to Arizona by supporting endowed chairs and professorships.
  • Leaders rise to the top. The Tip of the Fork program enables Sun Devil student-athletes to develop leadership skills through volunteering in their community.
  • Entrepreneurship thrives at ASU. Two examples: The Prepped program supporting minority entrepreneurs has fueled 100 small businesses.
  • And the Edson Student Entrepreneur Initiative has supported 1,000+ students and 297 unique ventures over 15 years.

"For our students, many have never seen a play or realize what a Broadway show is, so this gives them some background, the cultural awareness, the knowledge — and gives them a sense that they're part of their community, but also a part of the world."

Terri Poorten, teacher from the Girls Leadership Academy, whose class attended Kaleidoscope
