Reasons to Support

Support the ASU Alumni Association:

Top 10 Reasons Why It Pays to Be a Contributing Member

1. It’s the #1 way to connect to ASU
As a Sun Devil, you’ll find many ways to stay in touch with your alma mater, but only one ASU Alumni Association dedicated to keeping you informed and engaged with ASU through activities, programs and publications. Contributing members receive additional opportunities to connect.

2. Sun Devil pride
Giving a gift to the ASU Alumni Association is one way for alumni and friends to demonstrate their Sun Devil pride. Earning recognition as the prototype for the New American University, ASU leads the way in transdisciplinary education and research, which has earned it the ranking of No. 1 in innovation ahead of Stanford and MIT according to U.S. News & World Report. 

3. Your degree increases in value
U.S. News & World Report looks at alumni engagement as one of several measures of quality used to rank major universities in the United States. Your contribution to the ASU Alumni Association helps increase ASU’s prestige, which in turn, increases the prestige of the degree you list on your resume. Supporting the Alumni Association by upgrading your membership helps ASU and you!

4. You get to hang out with other Sun Devils
The association hosts several member appreciation events each year. Whether it’s Homecoming, a networking mixer or Members Day at athletic events, you’ll connect with Sun Devils just like you. Contributing members receive invitations to exclusive events and enjoy unique experiences. 

5. You’re in the know
All members receive the latest news about ASU through ASU Magazine, and contributing members receive a quarterly benefits newsletter, Alumni Advantages, and regular Emails about unique opportunities.  

6. Contributing members enjoy exclusive PERKS!
Every Sun Devil has earned membership in the ASU Alumni Association by virtue of their degree. While all alumni members enjoy certain advantages, contributing members receive additional benefits and unique experiences available just to them. 

7.  Get an edge in your career
On top of networking opportunities and Sun Devil CareerLink access, contributing members receive one free 30 minute in-person or virtual appointment with an ASU Career Peer Advisor. New graduates receive an unlimited number of complimentary coaching sessions with a Master-level career advisor. Learn more about this benefit.

8. You make good things possible
The ASU Alumni Association exists to engage, connect and celebrate alumni through activities like Homecoming, football tailgates, alumni awards, and reunions. 

9. Build a network of Sun Devils
Across the nation and the globe, you’ll find a strong network of alumni involved in the nearly 160 chapters, clubs and connections. Through this chapter network, you can join other Sun Devils for a variety of activities, everything from game watching events and networking to community service.

10. Enjoy a tax break, too!
Upgrading your membership counts as a gift to the ASU Alumni Association, and as such, is tax-deductible, thereby reducing your tax bill each year. Check with your tax advisor regarding this matter.
