ASU Retiree's Association

Learn more about your impact

The ASURA Membership and Operations Fund supports the association's non-personnel expenses involved with maintaining records, communications and its office. The association has no personnel expenses, as it is all volunteer! Because of you, it can continue programs for and by retired university personnel, including advocacy, education, social events and community-service projects.

Membership in the ASU Retirees Association has the most important effect of increasing our organization's negotiating power as we advocate for retirees with the University, the Legislature, The Arizona State Retirement System and health insurance groups. There are great social and educational benefits too, because there are opportunities to join with fellow retirees at social and travel events and to attend seminars focused on the interests of retirees. The membership fee to join is $30.

Impact of Donor Support

  • Donors bring the world’s brightest minds to Arizona by supporting endowed chairs and professorships.
  • Leaders rise to the top. The Tip of the Fork program enables Sun Devil student-athletes to develop leadership skills through volunteering in their community.
  • Entrepreneurship thrives at ASU. Two examples: The Prepped program supporting minority entrepreneurs has fueled 100 small businesses.
  • And the Edson Student Entrepreneur Initiative has supported 1,000+ students and 297 unique ventures over 15 years.

Many of these students have gone home where they are successful entrepreneurs, corporate executives, venture capitalists, impact investors and senior government officials. The come home with a powerful American business education taught in a culturally sensitive environment, and respectful of the nuances of our cultural differences."
