Donate to ASURA

Donate - Thanks for Your Support

How to donate:

Use your credit card on-line. Click on the "Optional-Seelect an ASURA Project to Support" button and then select the project you want to support. See directions in the sidebar at the right of the payment screen. Use "Checkout as Guest". You will receive e-mail confirmation both from the ASU Foundation (our banker) and from ASURA. You can also donate to the ASURA Scholarship through Campaign ASU 2020. 


Use our Membership Enrollment form and mail it or bring it to our office with your check. Although the form is primarily intended for membership renewals, you can use it any time to donate. Just cross out the "membership dues" amount and enter the amount you wish to donate next to the project you wish to donate to.


Donate your used books.

If you would like to include ASURA in your estate plans, please contact the ASU Foundation.


Would you like to support the ASU Retirees Association or one of our projects? You can do so any time -- you don't have to wait for our annual membership drive. We are very grateful for any support you can provide. Membership donations are our only means of supporting our projects:

Our ASURA Reentry Student Scholarship. With this scholarship, ASURA provides financial support for a student who is returning to university studies after an absence. Your donation will be to the endowment fund established for this purpose. To provide support at our desired generous level, ASURA currently uses its operating funds to supplement the amount the endowment fund pays out each year. As the endowment fund grows, the payout will be higher and the supplemental amount can decrease, thus helping with long-term financial stability for the organization.

Our Video History project. This project interviews people who have a significant history with ASU. The video interviews are edited and added to the ASU Library digital repository, where they can be accessed by anyone interested in ASU's history or in the individuals interviewed. The work is currently conducted entirely by volunteers. Your donations are used to maintain cameras, computers and other equipment or services needed by the volunteers to create a quality product. 

Our Adopt-a-Family program. The Association works with the Tempe School District and ASU's Off-campus Student Services to select needy families who are provided with clothing, food and holiday gifts several times a year. The program is carried out by volunteers. Your donations go directly and entirely to the families who are chosen for support.

We also need and would welcome your donation to our Association operating funds. We receive a small amount of support annually from ASU, but the bulk of our operating expenses are supported by membership dues and donations. We use our operating funds to pay for our membership communications (Prime Times, website, e-mails, mailings), our free events including social get-togethers and seminars, a portion of our student scholarship, and anything else needed to maintain the organization's functions. All work of the Association is done by volunteers, so no salaries or wages are involved.

Gifts in support of ASU may be considered a charitable contribution. Please consult your tax adviser regarding the deductibility of charitable contributions.

Thank you!
