Impact of Donor Support

  • More learners can pursue higher education. In 2022, 22,000 donors contributed $66.3 million for scholarships.
  • More students succeed. ASU ranks #1 among the state‚Äôs public universities for its 86% first-year retention rate thanks in part to donor-funded student success initiatives.

ASU is where I got my start, and there's a real connection made by giving back. Every little bit matters to students who are trying to live on their own and be their own person."
