Torchbearers 2006 . . . campaign update
Over the years, faculty and staff have given more than a million dollars to support academic programs through the Torchbearers giving club. Faculty and staff participation is a big selling point when asking foundations and corporations to support ASU with large grants and gifts. If the “insiders” will support a cause, the outside world becomes convinced we have something worth supporting! Your $50 or $100 donation may leverage other gifts totaling thousands of dollars, or even more. So far this year, we have 451 members, and hope to achieve 500. To join, click here or call the Development Office at 972-3940. You choose the designation, and 100% of your gift goes to the fund you designate. There are hundreds of funds and scholarships to choose from and to see a full list of funds and scholarships, go here. Join by Monday, Nov. 3, and enjoy breakfast with us, and have your name in a prize drawing for two Graceland tours, a $25 gift certificate from Hays Grocery, dinner for eight at the President’s Home, or one of two sets of two tickets to see the Three Irish Tenors at Fowler Center.
