Assisting the school in critical areas of career services and leading-edge research, the second gift from the W. P. Carey Foundation is a confirmation of our stewardship and our commitment to rethink the nature of business, engage the world, and create a better future.

When you give to the W. P. Carey School of Business, you’re a part of a proud and growing legacy. It’s not merely providing a gift; it’s providing opportunity. It’s creating pathways for exceptional students to begin exceptional careers. It’s answering questions through research that the world has yet to ask.

How you make a difference

Funding scholarships

Passionate about the value of higher education, Stacey and Scott Sprinkle believe that motivated students should have the opportunity to succeed even if they don’t have the funds. Remembering their personal experiences juggling school with jobs, the Sprinkles decided to take action by establishing a scholarship fund.

Helping students succeed

Many economically disadvantaged students are first in their family to consider college. They may have the interest, but often no mentor to help them on the pathway to success. Thanks to the support of Mort and Donna Fleischer, 219 students have experienced what a business school is like through an on-campus summer program.

Fostering innovation

Humanitarian disasters from flooding, earthquakes, or terrorist attacks uncover the need for precision in response time and relief efforts. It can be the difference in life or death. Research in this field requires integrated approaches – and donor support – to bring scholars together from around the world to study and solve these critical situations.

Leaving a gift in your will

A flexible way to support the school is to give a percentage of your assets by including a statement in your will or trust. We suggest leaving 3% of your assets to the school, which allows you to provide for the people you love, while also supporting the school and its mission in your plans.

Faculty are the principal catalysts of ASU’s mission — communicating knowledge, cultivating critical thinking, mentoring, and inspiring. World-class faculty produce original research that shapes the future, drives the reputation of our departments, attracts research funding, and draws other notable researchers and students to ASU. We seek to gain funding for endowed faculty chairs and professorships, which offer prestige for recruiting and retaining the very best faculty who will mentor the next generation of leaders. We also seek support for fellowships to support faculty who are exploring new areas of research or courses.
