Learn more about your impact

Critical research opportunities for law students of color are sparse, contributing to the overall lack of diversity in the legal field. You help change that when you make a gift to the Public Interest Fellowship Fund, which provides stipends to students and postgraduates of all backgrounds who are engaged in work dedicated to social justice research and reform.

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."
