Arkansas State University
How they are participating
Historically, state governments have taken the lead in financing higher education. Yet over the past 20 years, the share of university expenditures subsidized by state appropriations has gradually declined. In addition, the recession that began in late 2007 has taken a brutal toll on state revenues. These revenue shortfalls have translated into budget cuts for most state services, including higher education funding. Colleges and universities rely on three major funding streams: state appropriations, endowments and private gifts, and tuition and fees. Private gifts help ASU keep the financial burden that is absorbed by the student body to a minimum while ensuring they receive a high quality education, setting the stage for further successes in life.
Help us give students a brighter future by leaving ASU in your will or setting up an endowment now.
