Learn more about your impact

A gift to the Pay It Forward Fund provides financial support to law students securing qualified experiential opportunities such as externships, internships and pro bono work. In exchange, students promise to donate the amount received to the Pay It Forward Fund to benefit future students within five years of graduation.

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’s public universities for its 86% first-year retention rate thanks in part to donor-funded student success initiatives.
  • And donors helped ASU offer more than 4,500 hours of free tutoring.

The reward in giving to ASU comes back time and time again. And it’s so great to be able to see what they do. They want to bless the lives of other people and improve the lives of other people."
