Programs: The ASU Foundation for A New American University offers three community engagement programs supporting the university, its students, faculty and programs. ASU President’s Club The ASU President’s Club is a group of passionate men and women committed to transforming public higher education through their support of the ASU president. By providing intellectual and financial resources, members assist the president to advance ASU as it sets a new model of public higher education – a New American University. In addition to speaking on behalf of ASU in their communities, President's Club members bring about significant impact through annual investments used by the president as seed money for promising initiatives, to attract research funding, and to build strategic alliances and partnerships. Women & Philanthropy Since its founding in 2002 by a small group of women — including several ASU alumnae — committed to advancing the success of ASU and higher education in Arizona, the three pillars of Women & Philanthropy have remained steadfast. Philanthropy – Women & Philanthropy’s collective voice is formed by each investor who makes a minimum annual contribution of $1,000 to a pooled fund. Each year, members vote on how funds will be allocated among ASU programs, initiatives and scholarships. These funds support ASU as a New American University — an institution with the vision and talent to produce the graduates and discoveries needed to solve today’s greatest challenges. Education – Women & Philanthropy members are invited to engage with some of the best and brightest faculty members and researchers at ASU. These events are unparalleled opportunities to learn more about the university’s major endeavors and initiatives. Networking – Accomplished women with diverse interests fill the ranks of Women & Philanthropy. Membership in this organization is an opportunity to form bonds with like-minded women while advancing one of the most innovative institutions of higher education in the U.S. Presidential Engagement Programs Presidential Engagement Programs (PEP) are premier community outreach events that connect metropolitan Phoenix and communities across the country to Arizona State University’s visionary scholars and ideas through multi-week courses, single lectures and custom campus tours. PEP is a unique gateway to greater involvement with the university, connecting more than 1,500 community members each year with the momentum and intellectual power of a New American University. The single lectures and multi-week courses offered through PEP are fun, educational and often interactive. At a PEP event, attendees can expect to see, hear and experience some of the most captivating scholarship and research that ASU produces.

Arizona State University has an incredible medical team that is working week in and week out to find cures for illnesses, such as cancer. I personally am honored to have donated.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

every day life. Knowing that their job is to find cures for illnesses that could potentially hit me later in life is incredible.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

not change anything. They are doing an excellent job.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

That it is nonprofit and they aren't just trying to rip you off.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Very kind to me.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

use the money for research and could potentially find a cure.

Ways to make it better...

My experience was fine.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Critics in the media. If we don't succeed, people in the media will just absolutely trash this organization and that isn't right.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I want to make a difference and I have some money that I don't know what do with and I figured that I need to put my money to good use.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
