Invest in the Future
Your investment in the School of Sustainability gives our students a broader perspective and a deeper ability to rethink and reinvent the future of a world at risk. The knowledge and solutions created today will shape our quality of life and that of future generations – We have an opportunity and an obligation to make our world more sustainable.
Together, our faculty and students are addressing global challenges that include energy, materials and technology; water quality and supply; international development; ecosystems; social transformations; food and food systems; and policy and governance.
ASU Foundation for School of Sustainability
Invest in the annual progam funds
A gift to the annual fund makes the biggest difference to our growing program. This fund allows us to create opportunities each year for our students – workshops, speakers, certification preparation, global experiences, or attendance at conferences — to prepare our students in a very personal way.
Invest in faculty research support
Over 300 faculty members across ASU have joined our circle of Sustainability Scientists and Scholars, recognizing their teaching and research in sustainability in engineering, business, humanities, design, nutrition – you get the idea – will be stronger if we work together.
There are a number of ways your gifts can strengthen sustainability faculty, from nurturing and rewarding early-career professors to attracting an industry leader to serve as an Executive-in-Residence for a day or for a year. Awards for distinguished senior academic leaders are also deeply valued as are funds to support the research and teaching activities of key faculty members.
Invest in scholarships and fellowships
Competitive scholarships and fellowships attract and retain outstanding students who wish to major in sustainability. While their passion for the field is evident, a student sometime chooses to minor in the field since our young program has limited financial aid.
Your support directly impacts a student’s ability to make the world more sustainable.
To learn more about how you can support our efforts, please contact Jessica Otten, Director of Development, at (480) 965-9644 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
