ASU GIFT WORTH A MILLION
Couple’s donation pushes group well past target for Havasu campus. Two reasons Havasu met fundraising goal.

The initial goal was $2 million for campus renovations and start-up costs. We raised those funds in 5 months.
With the opening of the campus next August 2012, we now face an even bigger challenge. We’ll need $1 million a year for student scholarships.
In a period of economic crisis, there are no public funds available to finance a new campus anywhere. We therefore face the unusual challenge of opening a new public university campus without a dime of public money. It must be financed by private donations from individuals, organizations, and businesses. Due to limited resources, we will have to be creative in finding alternative ways of financing. One of these ways can be attracting private investors who will support our mission of education development. In addition, we plan to actively attract financial support through the implementation of scientific projects and research works. To begin with, we decided to buy sociology papers to get ideas for the first projects through detailed economic and sociological surveys. This will improve the quality of education and help develop new approaches to social sciences.
ASU @ Lake Havasu may well be the only new university campus in this entire nation in this decade. So, this is your opportunity to give within your ability and your commitment to be a part of something special.
We need your help!
Be a leader…invest in your future and in the future of our town.
