Learn more about your impact

Native American students make up less than 1% of all college students in the U.S., and only about 13% of all Native American people have a college degree. Recognizing a need in New College at ASU West Valley Campus, we created a number of college-preparedness programs aimed at Native American students. This immersive, intensive summer art program is where students live on campus and are encouraged to explore the university’s offerings. This art program is just one of several outreach programs that are geared toward giving young Native American students an early taste of the college experience.

Please donate today to make a difference in the lives of young Native American students.

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."
