Learn more about your impact

The opportunity for a young reporter to prowl the halls of Congress and the federal agencies with an eye towards interpreting what the rules, regulations and laws mean can provide the public with a plain-English explanation of usually arcane financial language that is unavailable from any other location but the nation's capital. Our hope is that the recipient of this award would use his or her talents to peel away layers of often obscure federalese to help his or her readers understand what they all mean.

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.

Our family believes in giving back and sharing the blessings we have received financially and through our time."
