Learn more about your impact

The mission of the Knowledge Exchange for Resilience is to support Maricopa County, Arizona, by sharing knowledge, catalyzing discovery and exchanging responses to challenges together in order to build community resilience. Your gift to the Champions for Resilience Fund helps solve our world’s most perplexing problems through use-inspired research that builds community resilience. This work addresses major challenges while reaping additional benefits — what we call resilience dividends — in social cohesion, economic prosperity and environmental security. Your gifts to the Champions for Resilience Fund supports operating expenses, fellowships, research, data analysis, events, professional development and the areas of greatest need for the Knowledge Exchange for Resilience. Your support expands ASU’s ability to respond to community needs in Maricopa County in ways that can turn resilience events, such as shocks or stresses, into genuine opportunities to grow and thrive.

My hope is that the Knowledge Exchange for Resilience will bring together all the forces to help us to be prepared for all of the resilience events that we're going to be experiencing in the decades ahead because they're going to be many, they're going to be powerful and they're going to be something that we're going to have to learn to turn to our advantage."
