Supporting the ASU Foundation

Dear Alumni & Friends:

I am continually impressed by the generosity of Adams State’s alumni in supporting their Alma Mater. Every quarter at our Foundation board meetings, we hear reports of alumni who have established new scholarships for current ASU students.

Some gifts create endowments that provide scholarships through the earnings, while in other cases, monies are given to fund specific scholarships on an annual basis. Given the dramatic reductions in state support for all of higher education in Colorado, it is even more important for those of us who can help to do so now.

Scholarships are easy to establish and can be directed to support very specific areas of study, or they can be done in a more generic manner, giving the University greater flexibility to award scholarships where the need is greatest. Every additional dollar we can provide for scholarship funding relieves the already stretched budget of the University, allowing it to concentrate on covering the operating needs of ASU.

The benefits we have received in our lives from obtaining our degrees from Adams State need to be made available to as many new students as possible. Sometimes only a small gap in a student’s resources can adversely impact their decision to attend or return to ASU. Please consider joining the already large number of generous Adams State alumni and make your scholarship contribution today. A convenient donation envelope is enclosed.

The positive impact on a student will carry forward for their entire life.
