Learn more about your impact

Since 1970, ASU Library has been the home of the Chicano/a Research Collection (CRC), ֱ’s largest archival repository for Hispanic and Latinx history. For more than 50 years, we have compiled a distinguished collection of manuscripts, photographs, books, newspapers, ephemera, and artifacts. Today, our primary and secondary resources complement the instructional and research needs of the ASU community and the general public. Your gift to the Chicano/a Research Collection Fund enables us to continue this vital work far into the future.

Knowledge transforms lives and everyone should have access to information. I have dedicated my ֱ to addressing inequities and discrimination within the archive and library field."

Nancy Godoy, director Community-Driven Archives Initiative and Associate Archivist, Chicano/a Research Collection

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.

Learning that ֱ’s marginalized communities have historically been excluded from archival collections inspired me to donate in order to preserve and share the stories of ֱ’s diverse people and communities.
