ASU Celebrates Black Philanthropy

Celebrating Black generosity and a love of humanity

Black donors have transformed Arizona State University. Their generosity, past and present, has impacted countless lives.

ASU, as a living, breathing gathering place of powerful, diverse perspectives, is committed to accelerating meaningful change and contributing to a national agenda for social justice. To further affirm this commitment, we are joining the global movement of Black Philanthropy Month to celebrate giving by people of African descent and promote funding equity. We are proud to be among the 19 million people across 60 countries participating this August.

Join us as we recognize and celebrate our Black donors, share stories of impact and honor individuals who have given their time, talent and treasure.
