2009-10 Torchbearer Campaign begins this week
2009-2010 Torchbearer Campaign has begun. Approximately half of ASU's faculty and staff make gifts to support academic programs and scholarship through Torchbearer membership. 695 current or retired faculty and staff were Torchbearers last year. Watch campus mail for pledge cards, or for the gift of a clock to current members who give $50 or more annually.  The Torchbearer receptions will be Thursday, Nov. 12 (choose either a breakfast buffet or an afternoon “happy hour”). Any gift to the ASU Foundation can count as one's Torchbearer contribution. There is no restriction on giving, and gifts can be made to entities other than Santa's Wolves or individual departments. Gifts might go to KASU, for example, or to a general scholarship fund, or to any other ASU department, division, or entity. The entirety of one's gift goes to the fund one designates, gifts are tax-deductible, and gifts can be painlessly deducted from payroll for an entire year. For details about all aspects of annual giving, to join Torchbearers, or to renew Torchbearer membership, contact Elaine Poynter, director, annual giving, ext. 2718.
