Torchbearers carry on!
Torchbearers carry the torch for academic and workplace excellence at ASU, and have been doing so since 1997. Each year, faculty, emeriti faculty and current and retired staff choose to enrich their particular college, department or other academic area with a gift to the ASU Foundation. Becoming a Torchbearer is as simple as filling out the form that's attached and returning it to the Development Office.
  With a minimum gift of $50 or one day's pay, as a thank-you, you'll receive a long-sleeve, black, 100-percent cotton T-shirt bearing the illustrated design on the back. In addition to the T-shirt, you will receive an invitation to the reception in November, and be eligible to win great prizes. Be watching your email or look for fliers with updates. Proudly show your support for academics at ASU.
  For those who continually give to Torchbearers (through payroll deduction), find out Where's my shirt? For those employees who are new or have not given continuously to Torchbearers and would like to make a pledge, here's an online form.
