Way to Go ASU – Winning National Fundraising Award
Out of Colleges and Universities nationwide, Angelo State University is one of only 107 to be recognized with a 2020 Educational Fundraising Award presented by the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE).
ASU’s Office of Development and Alumni Relations has been selected for an Overall Performance Award, presented to colleges and universities that show solid program growth, breadth in the base of support, and other indications of a mature, well-maintained program.
Sue Cunningham, CASE president and CEO said “Whilst today we celebrate the schools, colleges and universities in the United States that embody the best in educational fundraising, we want to acknowledge the people who make such achievements possible. Successful fundraising happens when everyone participates, from the staff and faculty to the institution’s leadership. This inspiring philanthropic engagement is guided by dedicated and professional development staff, and supported by generous volunteers. Collectively, we are advancing education – key to addressing the many serious challenges our world faces today.”
During fiscal year 2018-19, donors and friends helped ASU raise over $17.7 million to support academic and student life programs, endowed programs and scholarships, athletics and more.
Jamie Akin, ASU vice president for development and alumni relations, said, “Multi-year CASE award recognition distinguishes the dedication and commitment of our outstanding development and alumni relations team. It also recognizes the incredible generosity of all our donors and friends who support ASU. Together, we continue to enhance the philanthropic foundation and mission of the university, impacting current and future generations of Angelo State students.”
