Have a heart for ASU?  Join Torchbearers ’07
It’s not too late, but it’s getting close! To date, there are 456 Torchbearers, and there’s room at the table for more.   Torchbearers are faculty and staff members who give $50 or more to the ASU Foundation to support academic programs and scholarships. The donor may designate how the gift is allocated, and 100% goes to that fund. Also, gifts are tax-deductible. Many Torchbearers give to their own college or department, and others support the Student Travel Abroad fund, KASU, the Staff Senate Educational Stipend Fund, Santa’s Tribe, the General Scholarship Fund or Library Enrichment. One can join by filling out the online pledge form, or by calling the Development Office, ext. 3940. We’ll show our hand on Thursday, Nov. 2, when all Torchbearers are invited to a breakfast buffet from 7:30 to 9 a.m. in the Student Union.  Join Torchbearers, then plan to join your colleagues for great food and prize drawings!
