Learn more about your impact

President's Club supporters are fearless innovators who believe in good, accelerate change, and empower solutions through their support of ASU's president.

Through your support of the President's Club, you ensure the success of ֱ State University. Traditional resources available within a state university system do not allow it to operate with the flexibility and dexterity today's competitive economy requires. President's Club supporters look beyond tradition to entrepreneurship and innovation, leveraging philanthropic investments to advance ASU's charter.

Your gift funds vital emerging initiatives, strategic alliances, and innovative programs throughout ASU's knowledge enterprise. This year, areas of special emphasis include:

  1. Serving our veterans
  2. Serving the underserved through humanitarian efforts.
  3. ASU as a university with global impact.

Contact Lindsy Manning, Senior Director, Engagement, at lindsy.manning@asufoundation.org or Alan Sandler, Director of Development at alan.sandler@asufoundation.org for more information.

The President’s Club has always held a special role at the university. The men and women of the President’s Club embrace ASU’s mission and energize the university to excel and surpass what has been accomplished so far."
