To the Fulton Schools Community,
In 2003, private investment in the form of Ira A. Fulton’s endowed gift provided the catalyst that transformed engineering at ASU, resulting in not only the naming of the Schools but also resources for an incredible array of investments in programs, faculty and students. Last Thursday, ASU launched a comprehensive capital campaign, “Campaign ASU 2020” that provides an opportunity for us to elevate the Fulton Schools as a leader in research that advances discovery and translational impacts, engineering education, workforce development and community impact.
The university has established goals in six over-arching areas along with resource needs that will continue to establish the university’s position as a leader in higher education:
- Ensure student access and excellence
- Champion student success
- Elevate the academic enterprise
- Fuel discovery, creativity and innovation
- Enrich our communities
- Drive Sun Devil competitiveness
To date, the Fulton Schools have raised $75.3M from more than 8,300 alumni and friends, adding to the university’s $1B from more than 260,000 alumni and friends during the Campaign’s pre-launch phase. Our goal in the Fulton Schools is to raise $150M by 2020 as a part of ASU’s $1.5B comprehensive campaign.
We have put together a case for philanthropic support that will further elevate the impacts of our faculty, students and programs. I’m including more resources below for you to read and share with your friends and colleagues.
Achieving our goals will require effort from all of us as we advance the Fulton Schools, our fantastic students, faculty and programs. Our development office, the School Directors and I look forward to working with you as we connect with volunteers and philanthropists who share our values and commitment.
For additional questions about how to get involved with the capital campaign, please contact David Wahls, our Director of Development, at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 480-727-0827.
Thank you for your help and support as we work together to advance the Fulton Schools.
